Italian translation:pattuglie/missioni di sicurezza con mezzi armati
Explanation:
avendo più contesto potrei capire meglio.

Cmq un "gun truck" è un camion dotato di una o più mitragliatrici. Quindi i soldati in iraq svolgevano missioni a bordo di tali mezzi. Poi "security" lo si può tradurre in base al tipo di missione, può essere una pattuglia, o una scorta di convogli...

In Iraq, force protection is now provided by Army transportation units driving gun trucks—5-ton trucks modified with M60 machine-gun mounts—with a truck in the front, middle and rear of each convoy. Each truck has a driver, assistant driver and a gunner who must stand in the back of each truck on the lookout for trouble.

A gun truck is designed for convoy security. A ring mount allows the Soldier who is firing the weapon to move 360 degrees. Rather than just firing out of the front of the vehicle, he can turn and engage targets all the way around. The weapon mounted in the truck depends on the type of unit and what the Department of the Army authorizes it to use. The maintenance companies usually have the M60 and the M2, while many transportation units uses a SAW and a Mark 19, which is an automatic grenade launcher. In a regular combat situation a transportation unit would use generally one gun truck per 20 vehicles in a convoy.
