Any chance on some interior pics of the rear compartment? I think the Brad APC will be the winner of the GCV competition. It only makes sense to go with a known system and one we already have parts for in the supply system. It is a great vehicle and more than capable of doing the APC role.

I agree with you that it appears to be a most capable vehicle. I am still looking forward to seeing the other vehicle(s) being evaluated.

I am sorry that I cannot post interior pics at this time. It does appear that it might make for a relatively pleasent conversion for someone with your talents.

Respectfully,

Allen

I thought the upgraded Bradley's are for the AMPV program to replace the M113s, while the GCV will just replace the Infantry Fighting Vehicle variants and a few others? Nice pictures anyway. Hope they enter service soon, our poor 113s are getting kind of long in the tooth....but it will be sad to see them go.

I am sort of combining the two, but they are actually linked. The AMPV will most likely be based on whatever the GCV winner is. Again, it simplifies maintenance and supply chains. An upgraded Bradley system is the natural, and probably most capable option.
