The Army has been evaluating the performance and possible utility of heavy RCVs for more than a year through the use of robotic versions of M113 armored personnel carriers, but the experiment at Camp Red Devil on Fort Carson is the most complex to date.
Of all the technology that has been taken and experimented on, all experiments came out as 100% successful. According to Brig. Gen. Ross Coffman, who is in charge of the Army’s combat vehicle modernization efforts, this doesn’t meant that all of the technology performed perfectly.
