Those crazy 'mericans!
They do love thier military hardware. I wouldn't mind one of them myself, sure would make going to shops for milk much easier
Do you go to Jersey whilst fighting off Chinese pirates to get groceries then?
Very very cool. I wish my car could drive right into the water and then blow something up. I want a tank, damn.
"Video no longer available"
Works fine for me...
What a mad machine, I want one
AAVP7? Those things are older than dirt. Nah, you want a PT76 which can float AND carries a 3" gun! :FD
I've seen this before, there's a programme on one of the Discovery channels called Future Weapons and it featured this APC a while ago, its pretty impressive and just about to come into service. Its a great programme if a little gung ho, but I supose you'd expect that if the presenter was a former Navy SEAL sniper. Some of the kit they feature on there is simply amazing, especially the next generation of assault rifles, it makes you wish that the game developers watched the programme so that they would appear in the latest FPS's
Oh and by the way, the PT-76 is a very old Soviet design, the NVA used them in the later stages of the Vietnam war and yes they are amphibious but they are slow and poorly armoured and they have their main fuel tanks integrated into their rear doors - more than just a little bit dangerous I would think. I seem to remember that they are generally thought to be very typical of early Soviet combat vehicles, poorly made, poor performance but produced in huge quantities so that no matter how easy they are to destroy some will always get through due to sheer weight of numbers.
One could take a screenshot of that video and post it in Wikipedia on "Redneck". Made me laugh for the first 4 minutes of the video.
Nice boat-vehicle-thingadilly though.
this one is still a prototype and is still to get out.... as in 2010
I spent all of that video waiting for the guy to start quoting Gunnery Sergeant Hartman. In fact, is it him?!
Yes it's him
Thought so, couldn't see him very well but the voice was too similar to be not him
What a legend. He's become the de-facto Drill Sargeant. Period.
Couldn't they just put tracks on a boat and add a gun, thinking about it, that's exactly what they've done. It seams to sit dangerously low in the water, assuming that footage didn't have a marine unit inside.
Sticking the marine unit inside is only going to add what, 2 tons? The EFV already weighs 34 tons (wikipedia), so it's not going to get much lower.
That made me laugh, surely if you're the wrong side of the trigger you're gonna be very hurt?
Looks pretty dam sweet, I wish I had one
Yes, yes I do.
