U.S. Army going hybrid for next generation tactical vehicles
Col. John S. Myers, the Army's project manager for Future Tactical Systems was quoted as saying, "About every 25 years, the services have modernized their tactical vehicles. Right now, the concentration is on replacing the Humvee."
Analysis: While none of these vehicles ever be mass-produced because they were just built to demonstrate advanced concept technologies, it's good to see hybrid powertrains showing up in these vehicles. Eventually technology developed for the military will trickle down from these army trucks to consumer vehicles, benefiting us all.
