I'm sure Land Rover will submit the DC100 for trials.

I bet you didn't know that much of the transparent and ceramic armor used by the military is made by Coors. Yes, the beer guys. coorstek.com

Well they do such a good job making beer goggles...one would assume it would work well as ballistic protection too...

I think these things are ridiculous as jeep-type vehicles. Why not just mothball the 5 ton trucks and hire Textron to make 10 ton ASV's?

I want to see the requirements document for this acquisition.

How about the Israeli caracal or Sandcat ?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plasan_Sand_Cat

In June 2008, the Sand Cat was relaunched as a product of Oshkosh Defense. Now based on the 9-ton F550 chassis, it is being pitched to fill the gap between the armored HMMWV and the anticipated JLTV. The Oshkosh Sand Cat includes lessons learned from the MRAP series and features impact-absorbing suspended seats and a V-hull to add underbelly armor protection.[14] In 2010 the SandCat was upgraded with twice the underbody blast protection of previous versions.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the Supacat Wildcat or the Maurauder for the larger scale.

I test drove one of these not long ago, it was actually pretty capable, very maneuverable but pretty small inside. The 550 chassis made it desirable for us but I'm not sure how well it would hold up in the ass end of nowhere carrying weight over a mountain.
