    Those who would give up Liberty to purchase a little Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

    That is true. Never saw one like that before.

    At the same time, Rakhsh is a fairly old APC so I doubt they are still developing it.
    I'm not so sure about that. The turreted ones seem to be newer and at least the one in the picture was never seen before....

    Wow I didn't know that, doesn't 11 seem like too many though? Do they all have different roles or are some going to replace the other versions?

    Well we shall see. Obviously a version with a RWS would be a huge improvement to the current ones.

    Like the Block I/II/III + A/B/C/D designations of western missiles (Block IA, Block IIC, etc.) as they continue to evolve.
