    Fucking futuristic military vehicles.
    The Light Armored Vehicles of today are starting to become more heavily armored & armed than the light tanks of World War 2.
    What vehicles faced in WW2 is totally different than what we face today, now there's a larger emphasis on explosives and shaped charges which would totally eliminate a light WW2 era tank

    And about armed better, a tank gun of today is still much more effective than a machine gun, though modern grenade launchers are pretty dangerous for their relative size

    So? It has cupholders, armor, and it looks neat to boot. While I am not sold on it as a replacement to our current Humvees, it can definitely fill a support and transport role. As long as it will keep me and my battle buddies safe, I am all for it. EFPs will still be a problem, but they can penetrate strykers and abrams tanks, so I guess I would be fucked either way. Also, humvees are uncomfortable as shit to ride in and there is no comfortable way to hold your weapon when you are riding in one. Not only that, but it is awkward to get in and out of one with your weapon and also having to keep the couple hundred pound door from smashing you or your limbs.

    If i remember right they are, but they're heavily rebuilt for that particular movie.

    Edited:

    Armor's gonna fuck the mileage too much for a civilian.
    It'll be heavy as fuck and just ruin the handling of it in a sub-urban or inner-city environment.
    Besides the US military always likes to keep the armor details on their soon-to-be or currently used vehicles confidential, in order to keep the insurgents and terrorists from learning it's weak spots right away.

    ....Hrm...Willys Jeep lasted about 50-60 years. Hummer has lasted about 20.


    We gonna get a new model 5 years after this is approved and deployed?
    Yes, but you could drive a Jeep around in a World War II battlefield, but you'd never even consider driving one in Afghanistan. Conflict has changed too much for that to be an apt comparison. Your technology needs to advance with warfare. So what if you need to redesign everything in 5 years? If that's what it takes to keep soldiers and equipment safe, so be it.

    I still doubt it will take a hit from an EFP.
    Question is, what can truly withstand a hit from an EFP.

    Why the fuck do people complain about a potential humvee replacement as "tacticool" or "techno military fetish wankery"? Who gives a shit if it looks good or not, if it gets the job done, then by all means, use it.

    People like to nitpick the smallest details just to find something they can complain/bitch about. This helps them feel like they know a better way to do it, and are somehow more qualified than the armed forces.

    Tacticool implies it has unnecessary shit on it.

    They tend to have a propensity for the doors sealing shut when IEDs hit them, as well as locks and whatnot killing the soldiers inside. I hope this thing can take blasts better. Problem is, they still won't be able to take a blast from an EFP. Once we can defeat that, then things will get better.
    To reliably defeat those right now you require armor thickness, which these vehicles can't provide. Even assuming you had the power necessary to haul all that armor around, you need a vehicle that won't cause small bridges to collapse (Which is a serious limitation in many countries).

    To defeat an IED, you can redirect the blast, hence the angular design of MRAP type vehicles, which drastically reduces the armor thickness necessary.

    I imagine active defense systems will be further developed to the point where shoulder and vehicle launched penetrators can be intercepted and destroyed.

    I just don't think that you should have aesthetics in mind when designing a functional military vehicle

    If it happens to look awesome after it's designed that's great, but when you actually design it specifically to look awesome then I see a problem

    Almost all modern US military equipment can still be functional in most ways when an EMP hits, it is not like the military has thought about it and went "lets just hope it works when EMP's hit."
    Where does that say EMP?

    He said EFP, which I believe stands for Explosively Formed Penetrator if I'm not mistaken

    it most likely will due to these already being manufactured for civilian use since 2008 or so

    Unlike before, they can survive an IED, and that's a much bigger problem in Afghanistan than missiles.
    They still can't survive the shaped copper penetrating IEDs they've started using.

    Edited:

    This is pretty much the case.

    The current humvee is optimized to allow for different setups. I don't see why this new one wouldn't.

    I wonder if they will put a CROWS system on it. Of course, the Army in all of its mysterious ways never gets shiny new equipment put on stuff we use, much less make it work. The M1A2 for example has some cool bells and whistles and double targeting and stuff, but only when it works.

    they'll probably add the ability to mount guns on the top like the humvee

    Edited:

    From that angle it kind of does look similar.

    From the other ones, not so much.

    that's not the same design
