The U.S. spends hundreds of billions of dollars every year on its military to keep America and its interests safe. After social security, the U.S. government spends the second most on the military, and its budget for the military is more than many countries around the world combined. It is no wonder that the U.S. has some of the craziest military vehicles ever produced. Here is a list of the most badass U.S. military vehicles of all time.
The M-113 Armored Personnel Carrier
This military land vehicle entered service in the early 1960’s. It is an all-terrain vehicle that can travel up to forty miles per hour and has a range of three hundred miles. At least eight thousand of these military vehicles have been produced as well as exported to at least fifty nations. Being all-terrain, it travels in water, on land, and in the air too. The M-113 supported the U.S. military during the Vietnam war. It was the most commonly used armored vehicle during the Vietnam war and was nicknamed Green Dragon for its ability to break through the thickets in the jungle to attack enemies. The M-113 was also used during the Middle East and Iraq conflicts.
