The big surprise in this issue? General Dynamics and the LAV 6.0. I totally misread where they were going with this vehicle. Not only is it a major upgrade for the Canadians but its being shopped as the flagship vehicle for the company. To my eyes it looks like a blending of the LAV High Tech Demonstrator with an Up Armored, double hulled legacy LAV III/Stryker.
Now they're taking that same vehicle and tailoring it to Australian requirements.
I wonder why General Dynamics didn't take this same ride and make it float for the USMC Amphibious Combat Vehicle contest?
