There are a lot of weird military vehicles we want, but for the pure awesome and low operating cost we'd probably go with a deuce-and-a-half M35 six-wheel truck. Where else for around $2,000 (if you want a nice one) can you get a fully-operational truck capable of towing over 7,000 pounds while simultaneously transporting a dozen NATO troops? There are numerous varieties of this vehicle, but they typically include a small cab, large covered bed and some form of turbocharged multi-fuel engine. And by multi-fuel we mean you can put just about anything in the tank and it'll run, including but not limited to: diesel, gasoline, kerosene, jet fuel and vodka. You can run them across rivers, over deserts and through walls. The only thing you can't really do with them is park them in a major city. But who cares? Just put it in the middle of the street. Is someone going to tow it? We think not.
