Chinese Answer to the Humvee - Crazy Soldier of Course!

ESCAPADE CATEGORY: Shamelessly having no ideas of your own

I love the name. Crazy Soldier, apparently it doesn't translate well meaning fearless or something like that. Reminds me of the hilarity of English-Chinese mistranslations such as "Bite the wax tadpole".

Reverse engineering is said to be a Chinese specialty. I would agree.

Anyways, the Chinese army apparently has had these cloned Humvees called the DongFeng or Crazy Soldier for years. Why don't they just buy our old ones? With the civilian HUMMER brand going away, at least I know I can count on the Chinese for my giant SUV fix. Maybe the the civilian version can be called Crazy Bastard.
