    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.

    FCS has been cancelled, thank God.

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