Firefly said:Highly unimpressive. I seriously question the survivability of this system in a true combat zone. This seems to be another one of these " Transformation" programmes that has little practical use at this point in time.

I'm uncertain as to the range that it can be controlled or whether it can be controlled from a headquarters of some sort (like Predator UAVs). Anthonyp might be able to answer whether it can be crewed as he has actually seen the vehicle.
Anthonyp: Sorry for the BAE mistake, I must have been thinking of the old British Aerospace abbreviation.

SmithW6079 said:As I pointed out in a previous post, I agree that the sensors could be a liability. Of course as the cost of technology comes down, you could duplicate the sensors, giving you multiple backups in case of an attack.
A Black Knight would indeed be more expensive than an RPG-29, but so would a Bradley, Abrams, MRAP, etc.
