This is a photo of an HMMWV that took 15-20 lbs of high explosive. Shrapnel penetrated both the passenger and rear-passenger side, severely wounding a translator (rear-passenger seat). The passenger was fine, as the fragment that entered the vehicle (notice the large hole in the window) passed in front of her face. There were no fatalities, and the translator later recovered.
