Damn funny that as a car guy I've been aware of both cars for several years now...
the Rally Fighter was showcased on Jay Leno's Garage TV show
And I was aware of the CC2V DARPA Selects XC2V to Replace HUMVEEs [with Video)

but what I didn't snap to ...until today... is that both these vehicles are made by an Arizona Company

And let me just say... if this Humvee replacement has the same kind of performance as the rally fighter... Oh man... look out




I learn something new every day!

The Rally Fighter is an excellent concept: simple, powerful, lightweight, strong. It's built like an off-road racing vehicle... hence the name.

The light infantry vehicle should be lightly armored but fast and agile enough to escape an ambush... not so encumbered with armor that it becomes a sitting duck like the current up-armored Humvees.

Cool, millions more to either give to police or leave in the MidEast for ISIS.

Seems there was also this issue of non armored vehicles being destroyed, including soldiers, by IEDs.

Personally I don't see having only two side doors as working very well but it looks like a though thing, maybe it has more room inside the back with the clam-shell door arrangement.

This thing has quite big windows too (just wondering if they would be easy targets) though the whole thing is curved so it could offer some deflection.

would work for off-road rally driving, otherwise useless on main street or on highway. let's face it, it's a regular old off- road chassis with a sportscar body

By the time the Pentagon is done with it and reaches our troops it'll be way under powered, totally watered down and extremely over priced.

But hey, it looks cool

More crap to kill brown people in foreign countries that get in the way of the corporate bottom line!

This looks like a fiberglass piece of junk. What ever happened to the Oshkosh M-ATV?

Brilliant statement.
The military is meant to kill and break things. I don't think the color of your skin matters. They would kill anyone equally and destroy just about anything. Unfortunately for you hippy-love folks, the world is full of bad people. As far as new vehicles, they roll one out every twenty years or so. I don't see how this little thing replaces a humvee, but they look light enough, which is good when your thinking air dropped mobile platforms. Im not sure the angles mean much radar, makes it look more stealth but dunno if it actually does anything.

Just an FYI...
most of us that spent anytime over in the Stan or Iraq
get a little jumpy when we're forced to drive at 35MPH.

that was our convoy speed limits, no faster no slower...
made life real easy timing wise to use them damn IED.

having something more zippy, less predictable, armor or not, sounds like a whole lot better deal than what we got now, sitting ducks.

I never abided by those rules. And yes, we did have guys actually get speeding tickets due to some idiot tracking us on the Blue Force Tracker. Buried the needle in my M1151, but I will admit that it was unstable as hell. The gunner was scared snipless and we all thought it was funny until I got in the turret and we reached those speeds. Then I understood his problem...LOL. Quite often we drove like we were driving in a Mad Max movie, which in a sense, we were.

I don't think this will replace the HUMMV though (If it does, it will be just as Slayer says) but it could be a good recon vehicle. Just wondering where the turret will go because you know it will be added, and whether it will be manned or remote.
