Thanks to the Armorer of Arrggg!, I was connected with an amazing development in military vehicles, the Expeditionary Fire Support System Prime Mover of the USMC, a product built by General Dynamics.
The EFSS is designed to tow the heavy 120mm towed mortar, and special purpose trailers with it's ammo supply. A Mortar Company would accompany most Expeditionary units put down in the shitholes where the USMC fights. The Marines are heavily invested in the V-22 Osprey, now known to the Corps as the MV-22. That aircraft is restricted to loading rolling stock of a max width of 60" (five feet), which lets out using HumVees, as they are three feet too wide. The old M151 Jeep was about the right size, but didn't have enough grunt for the grunts (and is obsolete), so General Dynamics built them a new one with a vastly-improved chassis with 4-wheel drive AND steering, and CTIS (I hated the central tire-inflation system when I had to work on it and with it), and a decent Navisatar Defense I-4 turbodiesel to move things down the road, a multifuel engine that will burn JP8 jet fuel, too.
Just as I was congratulating the USMC on their choice of a more modest jeep-ly vehicle, I noted that the General Dynamics website mentioned another vehicle in the family, the LSV, the Light Strike Vehicle. Be still, my pounding heart, could this be, could it be...
YESSSSS, it is an assault 4X4:
Having fought in said shitholes for decades, the Marines have encountered what became known as "technicals", light trucks mounted with auto weapons. What better way to fight them than to have your own "technicals"?
The grotesque up-armored HumVees and MRAPs have their place, I'm sure, but for zipping around and still dealing death via Ma Deuce, the LSV looks like a decent deal, AND it gets there at 250KT by MV-22.
