Cover: The MRAP—the mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicle—might turn out to be the iconic image of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The Department of Defense acquired MRAPs to meet an urgent requirement: protecting troops on the move against improvised explosive devices. But the rapid fielding of this solution to a specific challenge has created issues of doctrine, training, sustainment, and integration into the Army's force structure and raised questions about how the MRAP will fit into the Army's future plans. In the articles beginning on pages 24, 26, 28, and 30, four officers examine how the MRAP should be used. In the cover photo, Soldiers check returning MRAPs after a combat patrol at Camp Spann in Afghanistan.
