Don't Mess with Texas!

Military unit: TX ADT-3 Rank: SGT/11B Vehicle: M-ATV Location: Afghanistan In route to secure a small village in Afghanistan, this vehicle has been, without a doubt, the most maneuverable vehicle for the mountainous terrain here. Wherever and M1165 or RG31 can't go, the MATV goes without fail, and when one gets stuck, it can be recovered by it's sister in less than three minutes. We have even helped the Local Nationals pull their passenger Buses out of the mud. In one instance, we used the muscle in the MATV to pull a wrecker (that had another MATV in tow) out of the soft sand. This is truly an awesome vehicle!
