It doesn't look bad, although I'm curious as to what its targeted use is. To replace the up-armored suburbans and such we have troops regularly using right now, I think this vehicle has that nailed down. To replace the humvee, not sure if its up to task. And obviously, its not set up to even think of tackling the MRAPs, although I wish there was something better. I could see this becoming a modulated vehicle that can be used in various conditions, which would be cool. I noticed that it was stated that the truck could defeat several of the IED threats out there. What size IED are they referring to? What about EFPs? I use to have a scale of what vehicles can survive what size of IED, in addition to the experience I have from being overseas and dealing with these threats. I honestly think the setup that vehicle is running is not much better than the humvee, and has yet to factor in the addition of the various equipment our vehicles now carry standard. I remember when I first enlisted, I thought humvees had insane amounts of room in them, but by the time I got to overseas, I found that it was very crowded and packed once you were set up to do a mission.
Like I stated, for what purpose is this truck for?
