  • With what appears to be a high CG, this is a perfect candidate for getting flipped by an IED. Mainly it looks like an opportunity to skim public monies by selling overpriced support vehicles to places like Ferguson, Missouri, not serious missions.

  • Is this some sort of sick joke? What next, designer waterboards? Bespoke rendition centers?

    Adrian Esdaile says:
  • This is a weapon disguised as a vehicle – “for use in hotter regions of the world.” Just what does that mean? Hot in the sense of upheaval, revolution, political change? Why are celebrating and promoting weapons design? You need to review your editorial policy. Reporting on new products without critical thinking can be seen as supporting the purpose of those products. The story didn’t mention if blood stains can be easily removed from the exterior of the vehicle.
