I can't figure out if it's designed for clearing mines, making roads or tilling soil for farmers.
can't it do all three? It's basically the military version of Mr. Plow.

All along I had thought of the US military as being the Imperium of Man. I was wrong. They're the Orks.
Man Who Fights Like Woman
I made an incredibly similar joke when I first saw this thing. Thing is though, it's not Orky, there are no giant teeth sticking out of the front.

It's also very good at pushing the letters A, B, and V out of the way.

Why drive on the road when you can drive through it?

It's clear that the U.S. Army is now taking weapon designs from Hasbro.
I'm glad I wasn't the only one who realized how awesomely toyetic this thing is.
All it needs is a spring-loaded missile launcher and a blue/gold/green color scheme and you've got a toy.

IS this porn designed to sell the vehicle to the Navy or is it designed to sell the vehicle to the taxpayer or is it designed to sell the vehicle to the grunt who has to drive it?
Good point, I've seen a bunch of these types of videos over my time in the Marines. This one appears to be produced by the MC training and testing labs that "figure out" the weapons systems, platforms, vehicles and gear, for the purposes of introduction and integration at the practical unit level. This would be given to unit commanders in advance of the vehicle's arrival at his unit, and at the same time that the training and maintenance manuals would be published and distributed.
I'd guess both Generals and members of Congress. Abstract video of kickass hardware blowing shit up, but also some manufacturing scenes hinting at a barrel of delicious pork.

These det-cord launching engineer armored vehicles have been around at least since Gulf War I, as I talked to former Marines that manned them during the breach of the the Kuwaiti border berms.
The only real difference is that they're now mounting them on M1 chassis, which is good for frontal protection and common mechanical parts, not so good for fuel consumption.
Fuel is no problem, just get on the nearest hovercraft and sail to battleship.
We're the USA, our excessive fuel consumption is why we need these in the first place.

The crew of one of these things will go rogue after reading some agitprop and go berserk in a Marines HQ. Nobody will be able to stop it.
