Video: M8 Armored Gun System

This video from DefenseWebTV appeared on youtube today.  The video features a BAE rep explaining the upgrades of their improved version of the M8 Armored Gun System.  The M8, also known as the  Buford, was originally selected as the US Army’s replacement for the M551 Sheridan light tank back in the 1990’s.  Unfortunately, the M8 program never received funding, thus preventing it from entering production.  Originally produced by FMC, the M8 is now owned by BAE who brought it back into the spotlight by featuring it at the 2015 AUSA expo.
