Jesus!  I thought this was just a demonstrator but it looks like this puppy will be ready by 2021.  That's quick.  I'm curious though.  Poland has the Wolverine 8x8 and now they're developing a tracked IFV.  What have they learned about their wheeled vehicles that has them reverting to tracks?  Is the theory of wheels better than the reality?
