Blast from the past. Interim Fast Attack Vehicle (IFAV)

The USMC Interim Fast Attack Vehicle (IFAV) is a modified version of the Mercedes-Benz Geländewagen 290. It replaces the modified M-151A2 1/4 ton truck (MUTT jeep) used by the Marines as an FAV in the 1990s. 

The IFAV.  Essentially faces the same requirements as the current Fast Attack Vehicle except that it was sized to fit inside a CH-53 instead of the MV-22.

I wonder if all the effort and money to develop these vehicles could be considered well spent?
