    Could have been just a test bed, could still be in development. Could have simply been a mockup.
    We know they are still working on the 40mm gun. It showed up in the big show.

    12.7mm maybe.
    but an RPG requires more. Slat armor would offer some protection against that but a Light weight Hardkill APS would do the job

    Aside
    These are 4x4 utility vehicles not normally classified as IFV

    That's not MRAP vehicle, so don't expect it can stop a RPG7V. If to stop 12.7mm / .50BMG rounds, it needs more armor than that, as you can see eventhough it stops 7.62mm it still went pretty deep.

    Basically a up armored humvee equivalent.
    Even MRAPs offer only limited protection vs RPG threats. They are mostly anti mine.

    But can the original 1980s HUMVEE stop a 12.7mm/.50 ball or AP round?

    The Original 1980s Absolutely not. It wasn’t armored. By 1992 armor had started to be added up to 30 caliber.
    Today even more so.
