The military battlefield has changed considerably in the 21st Century. Smaller, more mobile vehicles are generally being favored over the bulky armored vehicles of the past. Additionally, modular vehicles are being developed for greater adaptability based on mission requirements.
While some military vehicles of the future look similar to the vehicles they are replacing, others are quite unique and futuristic. Join us as we count down 21 amazing vehicles that will play key roles in future military engagements around the world.
Let’s get started…
21. Force Protection Ocelot
Like many of the vehicles on this list, the Ocelot is designed to provide enhanced protection against improvised explosive devices, or IEDs. Powered by an M16 diesel engine, this roughly 15,000-pound vehicle can travel up to 82 miles per hour.
All the Ocelot’s components are modular. If the engine blows up, it can be replaced in 30 minutes. It will also continue to run even if one of the wheels gets blown off. Additionally, the modular design makes it capable of serving as a supply vehicle, jeep, or ambulance.
