Rheinmetall Mission Master XT, an all-new autonomous platform

This isn't a slam at Rheinmetall or the other manufacturers that are responding to the various Defense Ministries/Depts that are requesting this type of vehicle.

What has me spinning is that we're building a vehicle that carries our gear while we walk?

A vehicle that carries heavy weapons while we walk?

I can't quite wrap my head around that.  If it can carry a squads worth of gear then it a couple should be able to carry a squad?  If it can carry a heavy weapon then it can carry the people that should man that weapon!

I just feel like we're really and truly on that circular development thing. First we walk, then we ride, then we put armor on it, then we put a gun on it, then we put a bigger gun on it and the people get've seen that little cartoon and you get where I'm coming from.

I can't shake the feeling that we're in the interwar period except where they were truly grasping in the dark for the next great thing we're trying to force the issue.
