Patria and Kongsberg Teaming Up for U.S. Turreted Mortar Programs

Story here.

Wow.  This program would be a natural in the old Corps but I'm not sure the new Corps will even be an observer in it.

I'm really liking the moves the US Army is making with regard to modernizing its ground force.

It's airborne forces (and light infantry) will gain mobility with the Infantry Squad Vehicle.  The Stryker while old has seen a number of upgrades along with firepower.  The turreted mortar will only add to that.  Heavy Brigades are also experiencing an evolution right before our eyes.

The weird thing is that the Army/Navy are evolving while the Marines/Air Force are seeking transformation.

Can't wait to see which direction is correct.
