Lockheed Martin's "hard to tip over" vehicle tips over during demonstration

The Titanic of the ground tipped over during a media demonstration of Lockheed Martin's combat vehicle, the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle. The vehicle will likely replace Humvees for the Army and Marines. For some reason, they let a journalist test drive the vehicle. "Coming to you live from my broken femur!"

Couldn't they just put a turret in a Canyonero and save us a few million bucks?

I've learned as soon as they make anything "Idiot Proof" somebody comes up with a better idiot!
When I was a Combat Engineer...we had this multi purpose POS tractor,backhoe etc that had a tip meter.
Let me warn all...any vehicle that has a tip meter built into it will tip over. unless you only drive on flat ground....really slow.

Still laughing. Guess it would be good to go to the links before posting :)

So no press credentials yet. If thats the direction you go with your career you'll do fine. Your wit and your writing are getting sharper all the time.

CI,

A tip meter! That's hilarious. I can't imagine putting a tip meter in a military vehicle. I imagine competitions to see how far you can make it go.

P,

No press credentials. They usually don't hand them out to casual blogger-students.

The only time I believe the word "proof" it is usually prededed by a number like "100" or "80".
