US Army Automobile Battalions. “Even trucks have Michelin tires”

17

Automobile troops or at least units exist in almost every army in the world. The diversity of their fleet, the number of members depends on what specific tasks the army of one country or another is going to solve. In this case, the question of how car battalions are organized in the US Army is considered.


Rudenko, a serviceman of the American army, a former serviceman of the armed forces of Ukraine, presents his story on this issue.

Rudenko:

To everyone who chooses this profession in the US Army, I say: guys, think five times.

He notes that he has something to compare. At one time, he served in the Armed Forces of Ukraine as the head of the service station.

Rudenko:

There, the cars were mainly driven by colonel colonists. But that fleet could be considered as one of the best in Ukraine, since a lot of money was invested there.

Talking about the US automotive technology, Rudenko draws attention to the fact that Michelin tires are used for trucks:

“Michelin” ... I at one time couldn’t buy them for myself. And here we have the “Michelin” and “Good Yirs” on military equipment.


The full version of the story is presented in the video:

    Here is the pure logic of a Ukrainian ... he would be more surprised that there are no Rosava tires there.
    On the territory of the United States, both Michelin and Good Year have their own factories for the production of tires, so there is nothing surprising in the purchase of their products by the US army and I simply do not understand the surprise of a person who has been living there for a long time.

        Yes, not only that, but what else to buy the US Army, if not tires produced by American factories.
        The fact that he could not buy himself wheels for "behu" means nothing ... just nothing. This only suggests that different pricing policies are applied to different buyers.

      In addition, Michelin is one of the best in the world in terms of wear resistance. If not the best at all.

    I did not look out of principle. I will not be surprised if this type is ready to buy cheaper tires for everyone and send Ukraine by mail to everyone.

    In principle, an interesting story. Surprised by the lack of auto electricians, it is interesting in the event of a malfunction that Humvee is debited? Sometimes even a blown fuse is difficult to determine. Moreover, they mostly have lighters, and a wiring failure is fraught. And what's wrong with the rubber is interesting, well, not Omskshina should stand.

      >. I was surprised by the lack of auto electricians, it is interesting in case of a malfunction that the Humvee is written off
      It’s not exactly written off, most likely new parts simply replace broken ones

    Well, and what’s surprising, we just have a little the wrong way of life and attitude to such things. But not only the safety of equipment, but also our life depends on the quality of the tires. So we have to, because of our poverty, put every substitute in the guise of normal ones.

    I talked with Rudenko in the comments on YouTube .. Unfortunately, he did not remove the saucepan from his head ...
    The last masterpiece of analytics from Rudenko is a comparison of the armies of the Russian Federation and the USA ... Why not the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the USA?

      Because youtube. USA - Ukraine Nobody will watch except Ukraine itself, and it is not a fact that they will watch these. Russia and the United States will see a lot, including emigrants to the United States.
