EOS has to be entering the T2000 into the Army's Stryker upgrade contest...


 We have a pretty good idea for what each manufacturer will offer for the Army's Stryker upgrade contest EXCEPT for EOS.  I got a bit tossed cause EOS Defense Systems USA doesn't list a turreted RWS on their website.  EOS Australia does and its the fabulous T2000 (as seen on the Redback IFV above).

So apparently they're gonna expand their portfolio for this thing and offer it here in the states.

That will make this VERY VERY VERY interesting.  We'll finally get a chance to get US hands on all the major systems and see how they flesh out.

I stand by my previous.  

Berger is just itching to cancel the ACV so the pick of the Kongsberg turret was just fantasy and wishful thinking.

But what if I'm wrong.

What if the ACV is actually a "go" and the Army picks a different setup?  That could change things dramatically.

Another thing occurs (and this might have already been discussed but I just missed it).  Is the Army looking to transform all of its APCs into 30mm IFVs? Is a margin being built in to upgrade to the 50mm on these vehicles?  Just snowballing but I thought I'd toss it out there.
