What am I missing? Why is this 8x8 suddenly so popular? How is Patria losing the European market to General Dynamics?
I predicted that the Patria AMV Advanced would be the "EU 8x8" in the same way the Leopard 2 is the "EU Tank".
I was wrong. Even worse for Patria? General Dynamics is the odds on favorite to win the UK Mechanised Infantry Vehicle contest.
