With LAVs having equaled or outdone the weight of IFVs what then is their point now?
>Patria AMV: 27t
>LAV 6.0: 28t
>Piranha V: 30t
this isn't a Joss Whedon movie
>lots of wheels
to get bogged down in!
But of who though?
Are they building these newer LAVs with that role in mind? Can they be amphibious with all that extra weight?

Still lighter than tracked platform with similar armor, better strategic mobility, lower maintenance requirements and logistics footprint.
Pretty selective weights for those vehicles. Some are at lower end of configurations while some are at high end when it comes to weight.
Boxer APC in combat order is much heavier than that, around 35t. 25t much be nearer to its empty weigh, and then again i'd say it must be a couple tons above.
VBCI in combat order is around to 29 tons for the heaviest current IFV version.
