In Feb. 1991 in Iraq this Humvee ran over an antipersonel cluster bomb around 12 feet from where I was standing. The force of the blast was enough to knock me to the ground. After evaluating the situation we drove our humvee and this one with its flattened tire through the remainder of the mine field and several miles to a motor pool with equipment to replace the wheel.

Very interesting, thanks for posting! Looks like the run-flat did its job and held on long enough to get everyone to safety.
