Fallout Re: APC Development and related topics.

Hope everyone is doing well, just some quick updates.
1. VBM Freccia 8x8 additional stats as promised 26 tons powered by an Iveco diesel 6V super charged engine rated at 550hp, Spd. 110km/h and Rng. of 800km. Source army-tecnology.com.
2. At AUSA 2008 held in Wash. DC earlier this year, General Dynamics Armament&Technology Products (GD-ATP)unveiled the STRYKER with it's new hybrid armor kit (Designed by Rafeal.) that will be replacing the current SLAT armor kits being used now. Delivery is to be completed by March 2010 under the 150M contract awarded to GD-ATP. Note GD has been awarded the contract for the next gen STRYKER also will provide info and pictures later. Pictures follow, note second one shows a STRYKER with SLAT and Hybrid armor for wheel protection this is a "quick fix" until units are all retro-fitted. Source defence-update.com.
