As the british army have decided to ditch the land rover as there vehicle of choice, does anybody know what will be replacing it or what the possible alternatives that the army has considered are.

i dont think its due to budget cuts, just competition and looking for the best vehicle.

Edit:http://www.global-defence.com/2003/p68.htm
look down the bottom of this page about the FCLV, this might be the replacement vehicle in which case this is the vehicle http://www.alvisvickers.co.uk/default.html
but this still isnt replcing many land rovers just the un armoured ones.
