It seems Lockheed Martin and Bae have been working on the FCS projects for a while, yet i couldn't find any mention of their projects apart from a site i just past by per-chance. I crossed upo a pic of their version of the recon variant of FCS (note that the turret is unmanned and the hull has place for three crew members).

And i must say that their design is a lot more mature than anything by UDLP (United Defense-Bofors), or GDLS (General Dynamics-GM Canada) apart from the NLOS platform (all they've done are draw concept pics and build the test chassis).




looks like its armed with the MK44 or Bushmaster III 35/50 supershot.

It also seems that Lockheed is working on the MEFFV (Marine Expeditionary Family of Fighting Vehicles), or so I think because their the only ones with an EM gun requirement.


BLOS


NLOS


Weird.

I kinda missed that, they'd probably add ERA or additional armour, but that defeats the purpose of a light recon vehicle. In any case advances in ceramics and modular weapon systems may provide for a protective measure if the mistake of a flat lower glassis plate isn't corrected.
