The boys have a new toy to test out in the desart.



It's called the Combat Tactical Vehicle Technology Demonstrator.



Reminds me of some of the stuff the Germans Had 60 or 70 years ago. Back to the drawing board I guess.

Damn, they even try to make a fightin' machine look like a freakin' space-ship! Just like these stupid-assed civilian Hummers nowadays. Everybody wants TOUGH, but they want it COMFORTABLE, first! A true "militarized" HUMVEE ain't worth a shit in a civilian setting. Kinda like takin' an Osprey to Wal-Mart, ya' know!

The UGLIER it looks, the more it "phsych's-out" your aggressor!

(Works in suburban traffic, as well! Ain't NOBODY crowds or tailgates the fella with the one-ton Ford, with rusty STEEL bumpers and "battle-scars"---might have to get a tetanus shot afterwards...!)

Oh, and forgot to add---I agree with you on the "old" look. Pretty ain't always functional!

Now, that bottom pic looks like somethin' I could get used to---IF I could just FIT into it, that is...!

The demands of the desert don't change I guess - it does look one of those German jobs...

Bruno - True dude. I'd LOVE to have an old steel beater like that, just for tailgaters.

And Dirtcashr - Yep, very true. I wonder if it could still withstand and RPG or IUD though? Those things take out tanks.
