I'm getting this one for sure! I wonder...paving the way for maybe a new Sheridan, or, an XM800?

Very nice! The M8 is definitely on my want list! :-*

I read something within the past year or so that suggested the M8 was once again being considered for the light tank uh, mobile gun system role. Im not betting on that but I guess you never know.

BAE Systems has offered a modernised version of the M8 for the US Army Mobile Protected Firepower infantry brigade light tank requirement.

Box art and what appear to be test shots of the M8 Armored Gun System posted on Armorama:

Gonna need at least two of these, one OOB and one to modify as I see fit.
