    Seems kind of pointless since I’m pretty sure AAA doesn’t operate in foreign war zones.

    Yeah, I would tactical drive the s$%& out of half off southwest egg roll Tuesdays at Chilis with that thing. Maybe even use it to drop the kids off at little league practice, you know, just in case....that said, Chevy is a little late to the 'desert warfare' game, no? Middle East is so last decade. They should be building and marketing vehicles for pacific jungles and Mongolian tundra at this point....

    The armor on the sides seems a bit thin.

    My two cents.........POS. SOCOM is already using the Razors and HUMVEE 1.1s were at least there is a cargo area. Not in this one, its a 9 man troop carrier only. I would hate to be the guy in the middle seat that can't do squat. Rear facing guys will have no room with the other two facing out on rear. For security those seats need to be switched, guys should face out in the middle and rear checking your six. That way they can all 4 shoot. As of now rear security can't shoot without endangering guys facing to sides. See color lines of sectors of fire as of now.
    No room for internal gear. Your going to lose important stuff lashing it on top and on the sides.
    There appears to be swing arm mounts (circled in red) that can mount either a M240 or M249. No bearing sleeve for a M2, Mk19, Mk47 or Minigun.
    Plus NO extra ammo racks.
    No armor protection from small arms, IEDs or mines. Appears to be flat bottom (not good)
    Comms? Don't see room for the multi radios, jammers, SATCOM, blue force tracker etc.
    Every thing adds weight, what's the payload capacity?
    Pioneer tool kit, vehicle extraction?
    No black out drive, IR light for NODs, nor DVE (drivers thermal)
    Where's the spare tire, fuel and water cans?
    Hope the windscreen is removable as no windshield wipers.
    No winch for self recovery.

    As of right now, just a FOB runner. Not Mission Capable in my option. I've been using these open terrain vehicles since 85' for missions. Takes lots of modifications to get these to do the job correctly.

    @Combat Diver, how do those Razors work out for the guys? We use them a bit and I don't fit with minimal kit and I'm only 6' these days.

    We tried this in the '80's with the 9th Infantry Division. It didn't pan out then & ain't gonna work now.
