What should the Army "hand me down" to the reserves? An LSVW? The Coyote?
The M113s. The Bisons. Gut them of all the fancy gadgets and swap the M113s metal tracks for rubber bands.
They would still have provided useful (amphibious, all-terrain) transport in low threat environments. And been air portable.
Face it. The real reason the Army didn't want to do it was because the storage costs would have detracted from the funds available to buy new kit for the Regs.
The Reserves need their own advocates. And their own budget.
