Sorry for another one of these threads but its a bit different to the usual "chally in afghan" threads. I spotted this over at defencetech.org and it reminded me of the portees use in the North African campaign. Defense Tech Video: Updated Boeing Avenger Now a theme rattling around on here is how to get a higher level of fire support on the ground that can be more organic to units than CAS, as well as cheaper. Traditional armour is too heavy and not specced for theatre threats. How about a modern day jalopee on an existing chassis and controlled from within the cab, an FSG on steroids?
