    BAGHDAD - Military Police Company soldiers of the 6th Iraqi Army Division, prepare to run through a mount and dismount exercise with their new up-armored vehicles. Prior to receiving the new vehicles, Iraqi army military police relied on pickup trucks for transport and to conduct patrols in the streets of Baghdad. The trucks offered little or no protection from shrapnel or small-arms fire. In response to the Iraqi army's call for better protection, the Iraqi Ministry of Defense purchased the DZIK - 3's from Poland last November for a reported $100 million. Distribution of the vehicles began last month, coinciding with the beginning of the first training cycle on the DZIK - 3. Lt. Col. Ahmed Joseph Ibraheem, Commander, Military Police Company, 6th Iraqi Army Division, said he 'feels more at ease now' knowing that his soldiers are driving in the DZIKs. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt.
