Defence Technology Review/Dec 2015 Edition - highlights include the General Dynamics LAV 6.0

Read it here.

The big surprise in this issue?  General Dynamics and the LAV 6.0.  I totally misread where they were going with this vehicle.  Not only is it a major upgrade for the Canadians but its being shopped as the flagship vehicle for the company. To my eyes it looks like a blending of the LAV High Tech Demonstrator with an Up Armored, double hulled legacy LAV III/Stryker.

Now they're taking that same vehicle and tailoring it to Australian requirements. 

I wonder why General Dynamics didn't take this same ride and make it float for the USMC Amphibious Combat Vehicle contest?
