I've said it before and I'll say it again.
General Dynamics and friends pulled a fast one on Lockheed and BAE.
The US Army was initially pushing for new production/new technology vehicles. As soon as they came off that stance GD switched to the DURO/MOWAG Eagle platform.
They got jammed up in the British competition and they're going to do it to the compeition here in the States. This is gonna turn into a price shootout and they're gonna win on that mark.
Funny thing is that me and other have always looked at this as a purely miliitary procurement issue.
We are wrong.
Homeland Security, the FBI, DEA, ATF and all the other federal law enforcement agencies, not to mention tons of big city agencies are all going to migrate to the winner of this contract.
General Dynamics is cheating, but they're gonna win.
In big boy procurement I guess thats all that matters.
