Timing, as well as the requirements presented to the object being constructed, were not just rigid, but iron. Therefore, such auto giants as Lamborghini and Teledyne could not fit into the established framework and failed miserably. And the only option that suited the set parameters was Humvee, manufactured exactly by AM General. This unit, which originally had such a complex and long name as "highly mobile multi-purpose wheeled vehicles," or abbreviated HMMPWV (Humvee), was destined to become a solely military machine.
