More military technology…

According to the Army’s news page, the eight new Manned Ground Vehicle (MGV) types proposed as part of the Army’s “Future Combat Systems” (FCS) modernization program will all be hybrid-electric vehicles. Further, they will be constructed so that the diesel engine/generator can be pulled easily, to be replaced by fuel cells should that technology reach the needed capability. They also note that the MGVs’ electrical systems will also be able to help support many of the advanced systems that are also part of the FCS program.
