FCS has been cancelled, thank God.

I know I took a photo of that turret in Ft Knox in 2001.

There is no troop carrying capacity. The whole point it to automate were possible and preserve personnel.

Why was it cancelled?
I remember seeing something about remote control LSB vehicles.
Something like our DROPS only completely robotic. Tell it were to pick up and drop and the truck just goes off, does its job and comes home.

Real cool.
