Issue Analysis GM is the world’s largest vehicle manufacturer; make, design and market worldwide. Less then 1% of their annual sales comes from their defense sector (GMD). They have been proven to manufacture armored vehicles and turrets with great quality. Their vehicles have been used in many operations worldwide.
