Subject: Marine Corps Goes Green

Written By: Mushroom on 02/21/06 at 11:12 am

The US Marines are getting ready to field a new vehicle for scouting and reconisance.

The RST-V is expected to start trials in Iraq later this year.  The vehicle is a hybrid, powered by a generator, and moved with 4 seperate electric motors, one in each wheel hub.

The hope is that military R&D will help make this technology safer and cheaper for use in civilian vehicles.
