Although it seems like the Talisman route clearance capability will remain in service it is difficult to envisage continued investment at any significant scale.

Nice. One question though. With the digging system, it counters AP mines by either digging it up or smacking it on the detonation plate to set it off, but what happens if an AT mine gets hit? Can’t see the front unit surviving. Unless it is to clear a route for infantry only and won’t set off AT mines?

Unmanned eh. Soon to be unfunded if they lose it to AT mines. Unmanned is not free. In fact, unmanned tends to be the opposite of free.

Ignore the above, just me channeling grumpy.

My suspisions are that the ground pressure is not strong enough to set off an AT mine and it is a system for proofing infantry routes only. And odd miscellanous tasks like bush clearing.

So in other words, “something to proof infantry routes only”. :)

Same thing, different words.

Rose by any other name. lol.
