Somebody screwed up at the United States Army Garrison (USAG) in Hohenfels, Germany the other day because I am relatively sure that an airdropped Humvee is not supposed to move towards the ground quite that quickly. Someone in the 173rd Airborne Brigade probably has some explaining to do.
As posted on the U.S. Army WTF Moments Facebook page and highlighted by Foxtrot Alpha, the botched airdrop lead to the free fall and subsequent destruction of three Humvees. You can watch all of them absolutely crater below, but just brace yourself for some colorful language as the cameraman cheers on the vehicular carnage:
The Tactical Air Network poses a few possibilities as to what might have caused the accident, which include high winds or improper rigging attaching the parachutes to the Humvees, which it supposes is the most likely cause. But you don’t need to know exactly what happened to see that the results are, well, WOOF.
