Good Afternoon Folks,

Teaching the "Stryker" to follow bread crumbs, I like it since the "Stryker" buy has now gone form its origional 2000 Vehicles to now 3000 plus replacement for the 500 or so that were sent to Iraq they have to serve some purpose.

Unmanned land fighting vehicles is one of the goals of the FCS. A couple of years ago it seemed that some folks were smoking something other then tobacco but with the recent advances in UAV's and the success of autonomous wheeled vehicles last year at ft. Irwin, it just might work in my lifetime.

But at DoD success means budget cuts and program cuts, Re. the XM-8 Rifle. It's hard to get excited over an idea that looks like it might work when you know it will disappear like many other good ideas.

ALLONS,
Byron Skinner
