Considering it's based on FAP truck it shouldn't be a problem at all, if there is anything that we can reliably make in insane numbers it's that thing

That we definitely do
I always get disgusted whenever I read about wars in the 90s and learn the number of men we lost in idiotic ambushes on tarp covered trucks and other soft-skinned junk, we lost more men to that to than enemy artillery, it's criminal stupidity
This is why I hate when people shit talk MRAPs, those are best military inventions since AK-47

As long as we keep buying fresh gear enlarging the Army will not be difficult if need arises
We finally have full setup for military vehicles: upgrades for tanks and IFVs, Lazar and Milos as upper tier MRAPs, M-20 for basic transportation and Zastava trucks for general logistics
All that is left is to get a lot of it
I like the way they want to modernize our M-84's...if there is a possibility to return some of those 150 sitting in Kuwait...well, I can dream a bit.
Kuwait is still using them and are enjoying them quite a lot
But if they ever decide to get something "better" and replace them we should definitely ask if we can buy them back
Then again I wouldn't be surprised if they also ask to buy some of those fresh upgrades should we finally get them in production
