Rheinmetall unveils its Mission Master

Ya know the more I think about the Squad Support Vehicle Concept the goofier it gets.

Don't get me wrong.  I like what Rheinmetall has done here.  I like other concepts too.

But we're adding a VEHICLE to each infantry squad and we're not increasing their ground mobility (perhaps endurance if the SSV is carrying all the gear) but we're also adding in a single point of failure, not to mention increased signature and an additional logistics burden.


The vehicles I've seen are built to what's being asked for.  I guess I just wonder if we're even asking the right question.  I somehow think we're heading down the infantry version of the LCS.
