The way I see it is the uniform is the easiest to fix because all it would require is maybe $1 million in R&D with input from experienced warriors from Iraq and Afghanistan (not Academy and office types like the ABU). From there production would be easy, after a short wear test in country start issuing that and only that to deployers. 2 years at the most.
As far as the number on the HMMWV goes...
I was assigned to 2/203rd as a mentor/brigade support team from Task Force: Phoenix. Joint Operations are truly an amazing thing.
