One could also do a US Armed Forces version since the Bushmaster was originally considered for the MRAP Program.

Interesting but obviously either its only for small fires or the rest of the crew travel in a separate vehicle.   Don't see a remote weapons station on their either...   ;)

Something like this with either a HIMARS MLRS Pod or perhaps a M777 howitzer or even just a SAM system on the back would look cool.
