The United States have donated 52 armored Hummer land vehicles to the Bulgarian Army, the Bulgarian National radio reported.

The 52 off-road vehicles include 30 armored vehicles, 20 vehicles with enhanced protection and two ambulances. The Hummers are worth USD 16 M with the amount coming from the Solidarity Fund, which provides security assistance to nations with troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.
