Japanese "Future" AAV Testbeds...

Thanks to Slowman for the links!

First.  Awesome find Slowman!  Good job!  Next.  Looks like the Japanese are working on both a tracked and wheeled test bed for a "Future" AAV.

Personally that makes me cheer.  I wonder if the USMC is monitoring their work.  The Japanese are motivated to get a solution and they have a long history with amphibious vehicles (well during WW2 but you get the idea).

I wonder though.  Have we gone from world leaders with the original LVTP series to now depending on others to develop amphibious armored vehicles?
