A diesel electric hybrid is pretty fascinating for a military runabout. What interests me is the no driveshafts and using electric motors to drive the wheels in order to shape the underside of this vehicle to withstand IEDs better than a more conventional design. Interesting that a hybrid design actually improves the armor requirement
