It could be interesting to see how the parachute air drop option evolves though the US Army seems have moved on with the low altitude palletised extraction system route.

A few of these would be useful on some of our planned JLTV, especially those allocated to say our "Rapid Intervention forces" . Yes it would be a new gun but we have the infrastructure in place of Chain Guns already as a result of using the Apache with its 30mm and the co-axial 7.62 version. Maybe we could swap out the Stingers for Starstreak but out SF already use the occasional Stinger.

It could also be useful for a possible SPAA version of the Boxer, though the heavier version maybe better with its added firepower.
