Trophy Active Protection System coming to a USMC M1A1 near you!

Thanks to John for the pic!

Good on Marine Tankers!  Even better on HQMC.

Everytime I get close to raging about the aviation centric Marine Corps they draw me back in with moves like this.

I heard about it but I doubted the truth.  I believed that sunshine was being busted off the behind  of the GCE.

Thankfully I was wrong.

As far as moving on from the M1A1 to the M1A2 SEP V3? 

Don't see the need.

The US Army is the heavy force.  They'll have more than enough top line tanks to handle the heavy armor fight.  If we're faced with that then roles and missions means that we'll guard their flanks while they do that heavy lifting.

The Trophy APS and other upgrades to the M1A1 will see it viable into the future.

A great move for Marine Tanks, and perhaps the beginning of the return to being good stewards with the tax payers money.
