And while we're on the subject...
JLTV thread!
https://oshkoshdefense.com/jltv/
To me, this vehicle has a certain resemblance to the International Navistar MXT-MV Husky used by the British army, in that it follows a pick-up truck layout with a MRAP body. Which rather makes me wonder why the MXT wasn't a contender for the JLTV contract?

It suffers from the same problem all multiroles suffer, which is lack of efficiency. And as the other thread is being discussed, it also leaves a gap in low-intensity general work that makes every military functional.

Other than that it's an ok vehicle, considering it replaces humvees juryrigged with extra armor.

Other way around, I think the British are going to buy the JLTV.
