Textron/Boeing/Millenworks JLTV

The Textron/Boeing/Millenworks JLTV did indeed turn out pretty much as a dead ringer for the Millenworks Light Utility Vehicle. This YouTube video features a good bit of action footage along with the company's description of its entry in the competition.

This entry, judging from appearances, is at the other end of the spectrum from the AM General offering in terms of visibility from the driver's seat.

The vehicle also looks particularly nimble.

I wonder how it stacks up in terms of payload and towing capacity?

Given that the Millenworks LUV has been in development for some time, I can't help but wonder if some version of it will compete for the transitional vehicle order that is supposed to span the gap between the Humvee/MRAP and the JLTV.
