    Can we not just go off the shelf next time?
    New thread new vehicle.
    The Rangers are using German Eagles in Mali aren’t they? Couldn’t we just try and buy something of complete common spec with other EU nations?

    we should have just got RG32M (the proven Swedish one, not the LTV)

    or just got AUVs

    It's replacing boots....these are for units that at most had some Humvees to move guys with.

    Not really the Infantry Squad Vehicle (ISV) is aimed at a particular set of light troops for whom mobility is more important. The ISV can easily be hung under a UH-60, while the only US helicopters able to lift a JLTV are the CH-47 and CH-53. These vehicle are meant more for the airborne and SF units than the regular army. Even the JLTV will not fully replace the HUMVEE, only front line fighting units are going to get it.

    Aka 80L of propellant

If they say the range is 250 miles, then that's 200 miles before you start looking for a RESUP. With the inevitable bolt on armour, radios, and roof gunner, your 200 miles soon becomes 150.
