AAV alongside Japanese Maneuver Combat Vehicle (pic)

Thanks to Dragon for the pic!

Its easy to forget what a tall vehicle the AAV is.  That's the price that is paid by all APCs though and the situation will not improve with wheeled rides.  High intensity combat will require APS and a change in tactics.  Delivering troops onto the objective will cost vehicles...we're back to the infantry crossing the last 400 on foot it seems.

Hmm.  Can we definitively say that the Japanese MCV is second only to the Centauro 2 when it comes to modern wheeled mobile gun systems?  I think a case can be made...and if we look at operating philosophy then perhaps they're neck and neck.
