US plea for 'danger-dodging' armoured vehicles

The US military has called for companies to hurriedly develop semi-autonomous armoured vehicles that can jump, squat and dodge missiles.

The urgent request comes as the US military rushes to adapt to "asymmetrical" warfare, using swarms of vehicles in hostile environments.

The Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) announced details for its Ground X-Vehicle Technologies, designated GXV-T.

DARPA does not want existing technologies proposals or fully-autonomous vehicle designs.

In a 48-page document released on Tuesday night, it said lightweight tactically mobile vehicles are needed to replace lumbering traditional armour formations, which are difficult to transport and require large crews to operate.
