Defense Industry Daily has an October 2009 story that talks about operational experience both good and bad, good enough that the Army ordered 352 more vehicles at the end of FY 2009. It mentions that C-130 Hercules transportability does not meet expectations. The NBC recon vehicle will replace the M93 Fuchs in the Heavy Brigade Combat Teams. [1]
