Navy’s New 80 MPH, 240 Horsepower Mini Humvee Designed For Airdrops!

By: | April 11th, 2014

The US Navy’s new mini (60-inches wide) vehicle/humvee called the Phantom Badger was designed specifically to fit inside of military aircraft and to be airdropped into combat zones.

As if that’s not already awesome enough, the vehicle can reach speeds upwards of 80 mph and has 240 horsepower to work with!

The Phantom Badger has a 24-foot turning radius thanks to the collaboration of its developers, Boeing Phantom Works and Motorsport Innovations.

Specifically, the vehicle was designed to fit inside a V-22 Osprey and should be extremely feared when it touches down on the ground because the Phantom Badger features a .50-caliber machine gun and a 40mm automatic grenade launcher.

Don’t worry… General purpose machine guns can be attached to the back of vehicle if needed.
