    "In June 2018, in part due to congressional concerns, the Army announced a new modernization strategy and designated the Next Generation Combat Vehicle (NGCV) as the program toreplace the M-2 Bradley."

    I knew I'd heard of Mr. Roper's ideas before ... Mar 7, 2019
    now inside
    A New Century Series? Will Roper Takes Air Force Back To The Future
    :

    "Instead of finalizing one design and then building hundreds of identical aircraft, you’d design a basic plane or satellite or other weapons system, build some, make improvements, build some of the improved model, improve that, and on and on. “You just keep spiraling,” Roper said."

    into death spiral? LOL

    Will Army Uncancel CH-47F Chinook Upgrade? Sec. Esper & Gen. McConville
    The Army wants to keep its options open on upgrading its heaviest cargo helicopter. Boeing is worried the window of opportunity -- and its factory -- will close before the Army makes up its mind.
    ... goes on below due to size limit
