If any journalists at the press conference expected to hear revelations of a major ground combat system acquisition on the near-term horizon, that notion was quickly dispelled.
"If you came today thinking we were going to describe the Future Fighting Vehicle, that we were going to tell you whether we were going to retain the nine-man squad in the back, or that we were going to have a manned or unmanned turret, or whether we'd discovered some new armor technology ... I apologize. You're not going to get any breaking news on that front," said Brig. Gen. David Bassett, program executive officer for ground combat systems.
