Since when has anything made sense in the US Military?

You can ride on a M1, while wearing a M1, while carrying a M1 as a personal weapon.

tl;dr just refining the same thing we've been using for awhile.

Any real IFV upgrade/replacement worth exploring will require weight increases to the 60-70 ton range that the US simply won't accept.

It's dumb that we won't even swap the Bradley's 25mn for a 30mm. Good enough for the strykers but not the heavy brigades I guess...
