The Advanced Light Strike Vehicle actually is a Totally new Vehicle called the Flyer It's made by General Dynamics Land systems. The desert Patrol Vehicle has a interesting heritage you see it shares it's engine and chassis with WW2 era vehicle... readyThese should definitely qualify for being light / ultra-light right?

(Defensa.com) Brazil ruled the so-called General Employment Lightweight Vehicle, Airborne VLEGA Gaucho, like Uruguay. The Brazilian Army is apparently choosing his Chivunk, and Argentina therefore not confirm your choices by 14 Brazilian armored Guarani, approaching the VN-1 Chinese and other eastern naval and air options, which deeply upsets Brazil. The Argentine Army, after testing the Guarani, argued that favored 8x8 vehicles, the Asian offer, however, is not the most valued by the Land Forces of that country.
In the naval sphere and in the area of OPV, Argentina, Falklands dispute through, never considered the BAE "Amazon" that Brazil sought to manufacture locally to third countries. Neither Uruguay, although the first South American output of a ship of this class was just to Montevideo. Similarly, the "Amazon", which consumed much of the available resources to other items of the Brazilian Navy, BAE were discontinued in favor of more expensive options. Furthermore, certain difficulties with its supply of radars Scanter 4100 transcended regionally. Argentines and Uruguayans flirtations by Chinese IPO (although the Uruguayan Navy ostensibly prefer, if they could afford them, the Lurssen) also fell ill in Brasilia, but for now, does not have much to offer about their neighbors.
Finally, industrial indecision, complicated partners (especially Venezuela) and the uncertainties of the project itself, especially regarding Venezuela and Bolivia logistically Americans do not want no Israeli engines and avionics make Brazil discreetly go abandoning the project multinational training aircraft Unasur I, of which there is still neither a prototype available in Cordoba.
So, the relationship between defense and security industries in Brazil and Argentina remain scarce, limited to provide the KC-390 parts manufactured in FAdeA, although Argentine options for six aircraft are not confirmed yet. To make matters worse, Brazil, with the Super Tucano, Argentina, the Pampa II / III, and with China, L-15 and K-8 face in a Bolivian tender includes an amount of $ 140 million to acquire fighter planes.

The objective is to provide a dash of mobility, long-range scouting and fire support to units that mostly move on foot. An Airborne unit with ULCVs could airdrop into a remote location far from enemy forces, mount up, and race cross-country to seize an airfield for reinforcements to fly into. This kind of capability is crucial to the Army’s quest to become more

The commercial marketplace also operates at a radically different pace than does Pentagon acquisition. “We change models every year,” said Haddad. “Imagine the headache you’d have with that in a program of record; you’d just be buried by the change orders.” But the commercial experience does help speed up the military side, he said: DAGOR went from “a piece of paper with a concept [to] for vehicles being tested at the NTC [
Because of Polaris’s commercial experience, Haddad boasted, “we’ve been through this process more times than you can imagine, and we’ve had more successes and failures than all of our competitors combined.”
