The Future of Armored Warfare? This is a simply awesome project. This guy should be given some recognition and maybe even a job in an AGENCY like DARPA. No way we should let a talented guy like this slip through the cracks. Go Army!!!

One thing that hasn't been explained to me is just why a large mech is better than existing AFV designs. You go up in mobility- maybe. You go down in survivability, maintainability, concealability, and firepower. I DO think some sort of, well, "gorilla suit" (with a bow to Heinlein and Tony Stark) is the future of infantry combat. I DON'T think mecha in the style of Robotech/Battletech are the sucessor for FCS.
