Might be a little off topic here,but years ago I used to race husqvarna dirt bikes,made in Sweden.They wanted an automatic transmission in they're
military bikes.The swedish gov't puts out offers for bids as we do,BUT!!! Any winning bid HAS to be on budget,or the bidder eats the loss..And they
have to maintain the item,basically a warranty,for 5 years.Husqvarna won the contract,but balked at the 5 year warranty part,as it was never long term
tested,and asked for it to be dropped.In the end,they withdrew the bid,sold them to the public,and it flopped due to reliability issues.Wow,a
communist country like Sweden has a better plan than we do!
