The answer is simple ,I cant put a picture up so work with me here.
We are losing personell without a doubt to IEDs we generally have air superiority,I also respect anyone fighting to make this a humanitarian world,so
we only need to consider the aspect of force transfer from the ground level to the transport substructure.
Simply put we need to get high,high ,higher up from the ground.No other option.
So lets put em up thirty feet in the air and change the playing field
Distance equals time in a detonation and time changes everything,this is easy .
Do the math ,up is the only way to go in this instance and application,bigger isnt better,thicker armor isnt better due to the nature of the explosive
results with todays materials,time is of the essence,as in height.
