The HMMWV is used by a number of US-supported nations, but many of the more industrialized nations have their own light 4x4s.
The Brits and the Australians use Land Rovers. The Brits also use a few Steyr Pinzgauers. (The Pinz is the vehicle the HMMWV should have been, IMO.)
The Italians use an IVECCO product (can't remembe the model).
The Romanians use the ARO 244 series.
The Iraqis also have a number of other vehicles besides the Humvee, for example in 2005their main vehicle seemed to be an Isuzu version of the truck called the Chevy Colorado in the US.
The Japanese, Koreans, and Poles had their own vehicles as well, IIRC.
Never saw any in Iraq of course, but I think the Canadians still use the Iltis.
The Russians use the UAZ 469B.
I think the Germans use the Mercedes G-wagen.

when ever the U.S. Government sells our military hardware to "friends" it always makes me wonder WHY we do that. it almost always comes back to bite us in the ass when the friend becomes our new enemy.

like Iran will be and then we will fight F-14's and F-15's.

interesting
