    I think it's for situations where you don't need a Humvee.

    Like for the National Guard... and the PNP-SAF.

    Actually, this jeep is a tad bit more powerful than the HMMWV

    the humvee, with its 8-cylinder, 6.5 liter diesel, produces around 150 hp. Uparmoring the humvee only added to its weight, causing it to bog down and have poor maneuverability

    If I recall, the humvee wasn't also designed to be a frontline vehicle, leading to the horrendous losses in iraq as they were subjected to IEDs and RPGs.

    ang biggest selling point ng j8 over the humvee is the cheaper cost, mas malaki commission maipapatanong ng defense department!

    This part of the article should answer some questions...
    While not designed for front-line combat operations, the Jeep J8 is fully armour capable and excels in a variety of duties ranging from command vehicle to troop/cargo carrier, ambulance, communications vehicle and other duties – also making it suitable for civilian government applications. Heavy-duty bumpers with tow eyes allow the Jeep J8 to be easily transported by aeroplane or helicopter.
    The way I see it, its basically a lighter, more affordable, and more fuel efficient alternative to the big HUMVEE, something for lighter duty work.
