Bosnia receives HMMWVs from US government

30th March 2017 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US government has donated 24 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs) to the armed forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), with the vehicles handed over in a ceremony on 23 March.

According to HMMWV manufacturer AM General, a further 20 vehicles will be delivered by the end of 2017.

The vehicles, worth $3.5 million, have been donated as part of a wider effort to upgrade the equipment of the BiH armed forces, providing enhanced protection, reconnaissance and tactical offensive operations capabilities for its land forces.

US ambassador to BiH, Maureen Cormack, said that the vehicles, which are synonymous with the US Army and NATO are the foundation of mobile armed forces, and will give the BiH armed forces the ability to react more quickly and efficiently across the country.
