While I was stationed with the Amphibious Warfare Technology Directorate in Quantico in the mid 1990's, we hired Dick Rutan, the individual who designed the airplane that flew around the world non stop, to design and build a light weight scout car. Very nice machine. Very quiet, ran on batteries and a small engine, supposed to eventually be powered by fuel cells. Looked like a dune buggy. Troops loved it.
