The Growler is the military vehicle you want
Get your M1161 Today!
Military vehicles are pretty hard to acquire even if you have money and the connections to do so, and then harder to maintain mainly because of their nature. Sure, you can buy certain vehicles outright, such as military spec Land Rovers if you live in the UK or Australia, but that doesn’t apply to all vehicles, particularly armored ones like tanks or APCs, and even if you did acquire them they will mostly remain as a static display unless you have the means and the expertise to run them.
These, however, do not apply to the M1161 Growler, something that the US Govt is more than happy to sell to you on GovPlanet. For quite some time now the US Govt has been selling off their excess fleet of Humvees but it is only recently they have started selling other vehicles such as the M1161 ITV-LSV (Internally Transportable Light Strike Vehicle) and MTVR (Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement). Both these vehicles have extraordinary off-road capabilities but it’s the ITV that most of you will be interested in.
The M1161 Growler is a fast attack vehicle that was specially designed to fit inside a V-22 Osprey tiltrotor. The vehicle is basically a jeep that moves like a dune buggy. It is powered by a Navistar 2.8 Liter in-line 4 diesel engine that produces 132 hp. It has a top speed of 85 mph on roads and 65 mph off-road. It comes with height-adjustable air suspension and four-wheel steering.
So forget about any pickup trucks or UTV, Growler is the vehicle you want. While the bidding starts from $5000 on GovPlanet, which is by no means cheap, if you consider the fact that the US Govt bought the Growler at $209,000 each, it is comparatively cheap. 5 Growlers will hit the auction block on 30th October and 7 more on 6th November.
It goes without saying, quantities are limited so get yours today.
