Assume this is the final arraignment of the Trophy system? Also, note the upgraded armor on the turret face. The entire turret looks pretty "clunky". Wonder if wouldn't have been easier to redesign the entire turret to better integrate Trophy and the new armor package?

Hi, Doug and James!

There HAVE been times when DOD has released photos of older equipment "wearing" the most up-to-date wizardry, have they not? I viewed this very photo on the DOD site a couple of years ago, so I wouldn't put too much stock in what this particular pic shows. Let's wait a few months- We'll probably see photos of more "up to date" M1A2Cs less TUSK 1 and wearing the latest versions of CROWS and TROPHY systems right along...
