MRAP Alert.
Big, breaking news:

JROC Dramatically Increases M-ATV Program Requirement to 5,244 Trucks
With less than a month to go before an expected production award, the powerful Joint Requirements Oversight Council has approved a major expansion of the military’s requirement for Mine Resistant Ambush Protected All-Terrain Vehicles, lighter MRAPs bound for troops in Afghanistan.

According to a military source, the JROC on Tuesday approved a new requirement for 5,244 of the trucks, more than double the 2,080 objective laid out in the request for proposals. However, the original RFP indicated the program could grow to include as many as 10,000 vehicles.
