Military Surplus Vehicle Dealers
Millions of military vehicles (trucks, jeeps, ambulances, motorcycles, tracked armor, and others) have been produced for the armed forces of the world. Many thousands of these have finished their service life but found new careers in civilian hands. This civilian market has a network of dealers who sell the vehicles, stock parts, and provide services that keep the MVs in service for decades.
