UNBELIEVABLE.
That's our money they are just throwing away. I wonder if they would do that to their own personal vehicles if they paid for it out of their own pocket.

Cheers Trevor.

The worst bit is that they were warned before they bought them what their problems were, and how unsuitable they would be for the job.
Whoever thought that one up probably got a promotion, a raise in salary, and is probably the head of the Dpt by now.
Unless it was a decision made by a very junior clerk, in which case they're probably back on the street.

There are restrictions as to who you can sell armored vehicles too.

I have a mate that as part of his he had to blow up Armour Gard vans as they wern't allowed to on-sell them.

There would be nothing stopping them selling them overseas though. Even sticking them on a boat and flogging them off in the middle east would fetch more than $10000 profit on each one. Sounds like someone didn't think it all through very well.

I wish there was an edit button.

..as part of his job he had ...

No, armour-gard wern't allowed to on-sell them. He parked them on a weapons range and the RAAF dropped laser guided bombs on them.

Part of the problem was that as has been said they tried to do it on the cheap, adding armour to civilian vehicles never designed to carry that sort of weight was the first wrong decision, no doubt followed by many more.
Now if they had started with an armoured Humvee then that might have been the way to go as it is a totally different truck to a Hummer (H1).
