No M2/M3 Bradley IFV?

The M2/M3 Bradley is a tracked vehicle. I'm going to assume that the title of this thread means that it's 8-wheeled vehicles only.

On that note...no LAV III? I know the Stryker is on there, but let's face it...it's just a LAV without the 25mm Bushmaster.

I will take the Boxer MRAV on looks.

Besides it looks like it could transform into something as well.

STRYKER/LAV/ASLAV/NZLAV... I hate them. Who judged this thing? Have you ever been in the back of one? Rubbish.

I don't see any Bushmaster IMV on there. Now that is some comfort for troops in the back.

By the way, BTR's are also rubbish. How would you like to be dismounting under fire through the roof hatch? That's right access is via a roof hatch for the infantry.

Never been on an 8x8 but been on tracked stuff, one of the KIFV variants. You'll do yourself a favor by spacing out. Just close your eyes and try not to think about anything.
What's the protection value of a Bushmaster? About the same as a regular APC?

V-shaped hull, small arms and shell fragment protection. So not as great as a full on APC, but it's only 4x4 and is quick as hell. It does however offer excellent IED/Mine protection to occupants

Have to disagree with you there on the LAV thing...or at least one of them. The LAV III is surprisingly roomy, and I've yet to hear any complaints about them from any infantiers I've talked to. Now, the Coyote/Bison/LAV on the other hand...not so nice. I've fiddled around in one before and I have to say that they're not pleasant to sit in, or to drive.

But, everyone is entitled to their opinion.
