Default Can you identify this?

This vehicle is in a Air Force commercial and I was wondering what it is called. Also do they ever come up for sale? Thanks for any information. Name:  IMG_20170614_160721.jpg

No clue but it sure looks fun!

Looks like a type of Humvee.
Apparently they can be configured in different ways:

I feel silly for not thinking about it being a humvee variant. It does look like a similar wheel base and size as the humvee. Thanks for the picture. The only thing is that the mystery vehicle above has a central driver position and I don't see how you could achieve that in a humvee. The ones I have seen have part of the engine and the transmission in the cab between the driver and passenger. You can't reach the passengers door from the drivers seat.

I like the bypass coilover shocks, the lights on the brakes and the protection on the ring and pinion on the mystery vehicle. Looks like it is inspired by an ultra 4 race car. The Air Force should enter one in the king of the hammers.

Check out the Kawasaki Teryx. It seems this is a version tested by SOCOM.
