Cat Can't Scratch It

Well, here’s to the future. The Pentagon has approved the further development of a flying, armed, armored Humvee. Here’s the topper…..Codename: Transformer. Maybe we will be in for a larger surprise than we expect.
The two companies are still a ways away from building flying Humvees; the first stage of the DARPA project is merely working on conceptual designs. The total funding available for Transformer is about $40 million. Officials from both companies declined to comment on the record about the negotiations, and DARPA did not respond to request to comment.
