    This prototype will be competing for the military's Future Tactical Truck System (FTTS) contract, which will determine the replacement for the current Humvee the military uses.

    AM General is designing this new truck with a "blast tub" that will protect occupants from explosives, specifically rocket propelled grenades and IEDs. It also appears that the prototype has a significantly higher ground clearance than the current model – 22.5 inches compared to 16 inches – and much larger wheels.

    Doing R&D and testing for them would be fun as shit. Today we're going to try to blow shit up... tomorrow we'll be driving through a river bed, and on Monday, I want you guys to drop this out of an airplane with a tangled parachute attached.

    Almost look like weights to me. If they're batteries, they don't appear to be wired to shit.
