ANGLICO Marines taking a ride on German Army Wiesel's during Trident Juncture 18...

Pics via Abraxas Spa Twitter Page!

Hmm.  These pics remind me of something.  Forgot who it was, but we had one bubba on these pages constantly pushing the German Army Wiesel for air assault/vertical envelopment in the US Army and Marine Corps.

No one in either service has even sniffed at the possibility.

Wonder why?

I can think of no other vehicle in service anywhere that is air transportable inside the CH-53 or CH-47 with the same firepower or mobility.

Perhaps protection still has weight in the iron triangle?
