This may be a stupid question but are there any supplemental armor m998s still in active front line service? If so any pictures? Thanks

I guess what my question is are there any m998s still in front line service with the military, also did a m998 get a new designation when up armored? Thanks

Your question is about the M998 and that is an early Two Man Soft Top Humvee. Never had an armor upgrade for it, but plenty had armor put on them by troops during the Iraq War as the Heavy Armored Humvees like the M1151 didn't exist yet. Consisted largely of flat plate steel placed around the passenger area and even around the bed area to make them much like the 6x6 Gun Trucks used in Vietnam.

Lots of variations on this theme were field modifications.
