    I heard from my Marines who went to Iraq that they are using acetylene torches when possible. I'll try to get more info.

    Default Exothermic

    Don't know much about the armor, but an exothermic torch might be an option. We have one on our heavy rescue and it seems to cut through anything presented to it. Kevin

    Jason,

    Are these humvees armored with the Armor kits or are they armored with steel that was laying around the garbage piles--

    I can talk to the MArines here at the motor pool to find out if there is a quick way to get that stuff off-
