Vehicle Breakdown - Fast Attack Vehicle (FAV)

Fast Attack Vehicles (FAVs) were first introduced into military service in 1980 with the 9th Light Infantry Division of the U.S. Army. The program lasted until the mid 1980s, around which time the U.S. Special Operations Forces took deliver of a number of the FAVs, and as one of the troops comments, "We began to tinker with them." Today, this modified dune buggy, which now is fitted for three men, is officially called the Desert Patrol Vehicle (DPV), although it also carries the moniker of Light Strike Vehicle and is still referred to as the FAV.
