Super Forty 40mm ammunition.
Dual Feed system.
200 Rounds Per Minute rate of fire.

That is just... monsterly.   I want one.  Mount that in the back of my Chevy.  8000 pounds of recoil?  Freak!

    I was thinking that with the price of ammo being what it is today I'd better go with the 25mm, but I come to find out the 25mm has 9000 pounds of recoil.

    Gonna need a custom fifth-wheel with hydraulically lowered stabilizing arms to haul that sucker around.

    Do they come with a 2.75 inch HVAR launcher?

    If so, that, plus a shell that can alter its colors, and I'll finally have a War Wagon just like Mack!

    No, we are trying to turn Jeeps into APC's. 
    The Light Tank concept was only "disproven" when it went up against real tanks.  As a regular fighting vehicle, I think the concept isn't just good, but would be perfect for the War in Iraq type fighting.  No thinks you can put Light Tanks against Main Battle Tanks.  But against Technicals and Zealots - it's almost IDEAL.    The Stryker Mobile Gun system is interesting... but rather useless in my opinion.   A 105 on top of an APC is silly.  A 40MM Bofors system would be a better fit.... such as what I just linked to in the OP.    THAT is what the Stryker should have up on top of it.  A dual gun system, each one feeding off a drum of AP and a drum of HE.   The Bradley's TOW launcher is another good idea to add on, but I'd rather see an improved system using either the Hellfire or the Javelin.

    While it is not a 40mm, it looks like I will finally be getting my supply of 14.5X114mm ammo so I can build the RDR. I have six barrels, so I think I will build 3 semi and 3 bolt actions. The barrel alone weights over 40lbs. Anyone want to shoot it to try it out for me? O0
    You only have power over people so long as you don't take everything away from them. But when you've robbed a man of everything, he's no longer in your power - he's free again. -Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

    There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. - Ayn Rand

    "I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do." -Robert Heinlein.

    One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws, but conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. –– Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Hell yes, redeploy the Chaffee! Yank out that 75, install a French MCB-81,  band tracks, a quiet hybrid drive train, shurzen, aluminum road wheels, cctv periscope system...or take all those Sheridan hulls outta mothball and build up a support track with those. MCB-1, coax .50, etc. But either way, a light tank, properly out fitted, would fill a big gap in urban infantry fire support. The Chaffee of course, doesn't exist any more, but the Stingray does. I think the 1O5LRF it packs is inapropriate, but the Stingray can be made to work easilly.

    I want to try too.  I had some Ethiopians tear the snot out of some Sudanese Jingaweed scumbags with some 14.5 HMG's.

    Set up shop atop a good mountain a mile or two from the border, with the right optics, and it'd be great for Coyotes.

    Those predators come across the border, dealing slaves and smack and AK's funneled from Cuba...

    I don't have chickens to plunder or a ranch to ruin, so the wild goggies don't fill me with the urge to exterminate.

    I don't feel an urge to exterminate 'yotes, but I am compelled to make them feel extremely unwelcome.

    I have a two year old son that enjoys playing outside, and I've seen coyotes strolling through the neighborhood like they own it. I've even watched them stalk my neighbors as they walk their dogs.

    Coyotes evidently need a lot of reminding about their place in the order of things.
