The relative Letter of Offer and Acceptance (LOA) is expected soon.Also according to exclusive information of the 'Hellenic Defence & Technology' magazine, a Price and Availability letter was sent to U.S. authorities regarding 20 AAV7A1 and a low cost upgrade program for them. This is the first step to cover an operational requirement for 75-100 vehicles.Additional exclusive details on these requirements as well as for Bradley IFVs, in a forthcoming issue of the 'Hellenic Defence & Technology' magazine.

The Mediterranean theatre heats up; from a tactical standpoint, they may be wasted in Greece, but they can also easily be airlifted somewhere else with relative ease. The question is where 400 such things would be most useful when massed and mobile on relatively flat and open terrain. They could easily be bottled up, I should think, in the Greek terrain if they did not have rapid redeployment by air capability.
