Ricardo and the US military have come up with a greener, more fuel-efficient armoured vehicle compared with the large conventional types. Called the FED ALHPA (Fuel Efficient Ground Vehicle Demonstrator) the tough tank is lightweight and showcases a number of fuel-saving aspects. The FED ALPHA is also made from a lightweight Alcoa Defense aluminium structure which helps to keep weight to a minimum, again, all in the name of making it as fuel-efficient as possible. Even though a specific fuel consumption rate hasn’t been mentioned, the project is still undergoing thorough testing to ensure maximum efficiency. (Photo: ZerCustoms)
