This is a -- -- -- as close as you're really gonna get to a real -- transformer by that I mean.
It's a vehicle ground tactical vehicle that taxing rapidly -- configure and become.
Essentially a helicopter because we'll have vertical takeoff and lift off so.
That means it can never -- that we're throwing up a photo frame right there -- is an artist rendition done for skunk works.
Which is the team behind this genius it's sponsored by dark but no we've.
And talked about lads are for projects you know I -- -- that.
Skunk works is one of my.
Salute favorite -- I travel all around the world looking at like the coolest new premier defense shops and skunk works is when my favorites in the shot out Saddam because it's -- seventieth anniversary this year.
That we just got to look at it's that's ultimately hopefully what it will look like but.
Super super super cool and it's impossibly cool -- -- -- it's a real life transformer and it.
They'll also be able to -- a transformer -- operate by itself.
So I can fly at Celtic and take itself you take itself -- a ship hit C.
Clients the war zone land be driven like a vehicle -- -- standard kind of a military vehicle to the -- as we say.
And then it can take off by itself and return home to that or to another location until it's needed again.
Made -- is looking at it it looks.
Amazing this is that you go fly -- water or ground he's all three of the of the -- ways two to travel.
Might I question as well -- really -- -- in the drawings there artist renditions I mean how realistic it is are we talking about you know you're 20 this is despite years down the road ten years down -- road.
I know it sounds implausible but -- their goal is 2015.
And they are right on track this the contract that was picked up by a some corpses in 2010.
So -- past three years down the line on an air completely on track an.
I think at this point -- -- cease threes so -- is gonna have a final review of their designs.

-- I don't I don't think -- and is Mandy can be you know area carries them.
I understand I don't.
The popular thing up there again if we -- guys -- -- that the picture but -- have a question about the is the the way it's the way that this thing looks yeah I mean.
I guess my course is -- with armament I mean I know one of the issues they've had with for example the -- -- -- transport -- vehicles.
Is that they had to re wrapped -- so to speak or the other new ones that are coming out be built in a different way help protect our our servicemen and women.
I mean how as this meant to be a four operating -- -- -- to be more kind of like behind the front -- mean how this thing work -- was -- a flight station -- but it's.
Eight sale which is armor deck is not cool I am -- products now that the -- -- there had a picture of direct.
The picture right now worst kind of -- flying over hosting a Middle Eastern -- that that we don't get much more masculine in an intimate show us aggressive.

We hear that on the streets some vehicles -- -- quiet than others but.
On that you know -- is always a key considerations so I mean this is going to be stealth.

You know it's our -- -- having super cool toys but do they work you know and there's just been so much money spent on right -- sounded cool but actually don't work in the field so.
Darkness set up some very big stringent requirements for this projects that I think are talk and very realistic so.
It's was -- capable of taking small arms fire.
Whopping you'll love this -- providing passenger comforts.
The GI -- guys will be happy to hear that we've both been in a lot of helicopters then.
What the definition of passenger comfort is.
Love that about we couldn't play.
Like that about ten years ago and -- really ignited an out of Iraq have been nice way to go -- and I know -- and bounce yes I bet you know it will have lakeside visibility front visibility would you get is very important.
Lots of these like all the sort of considerations we have for our current vehicles their clients -- -- --
