General Dynamics Piranha 5 8x8 IFV ideally suited to "hybrid warfare"?

via Defense News.
The objective of this national program is to obtain an 8x8 wheeled armored vehicle to replace the obsolete 6x6 wheeled Pegaso BMR after 40 years of service.

"The 8x8 armored fighting vehicle will be useful for today's hybrid threat environments, or for the vast majority of scenarios to which current security challenges will lead us. It is especially suitable for current low-intensity operations, especially in Africa", Conde said.
We knew about this purchase a month ago but to class these type vehicles as being especially suited to hybrid warfare and out of area operations is new.
