Griffon spotted in the wild...via @nobledefrance Twitter Page...

Still don't quite understand where this vehicle fits in the French scheme of maneuver.

They have VBCI's for the transport of infantry right?  This does the same.  Is it a complementary vehicle for lower end threats?  If so then why is it armored to almost the same level as the VBCI-1?

Additionally I've seen concepts for some pretty wild and wooly weapons fit. Its almost like it's designed to fight side by side with the VBCI, but it appears to be bigger than even the JLTV and once again approaching the size of the VBCI.

Just don't get it.  Anyone have any ideas?  Better yet can a Frenchman with definitive knowledge hit me with the thinking behind it?
