Turned out to be a mega million dollar flop. They were handed to people to drive that shouldn't be driving heavy equipment (Air Force medical kids),
had no airfield driving ability. Scarier yet letting those medical folks drive that behemoth outside the military base down the highway to some

airfield...throwing it in REVERSE then jumping out to check his tires for FOD?
Almost running over himself as he shouldn't have ever been handed the keys to the thing in the first place??
