Turkey and the Netherlands build vehicles that look exactly like this.

Neither Company is reasponsable for this vehicles birth, it is basically nothing more than an updated AIFV that FMC came out with in the 70's.

While some of these aircraft and vechiles are quite interest we must not forget alot of them are built off of older systems, the ACV300 Adnan is nothing more than a newer version of the FMC XM765 AIFV came out in the 70's and was based on similiar plans to the M113. Now I'm not saying we under estimate them, but we know how they work and what some of there problems maybe.
