Scoffers, you show your ignorance
Those of you who have never participated in behind-the-lines rescue ops may be startled to learn that the team is usually inserted within 10 miles of the downed airmen they are there to rescue. Fifty miles' range is superb for a vehicle which makes very little noise, has no olfactory signature, and won't burn with enthusiam in the event the fuel tank is pucntured (since it has none, as such). they can get in much faster than walking, load up the injured onto a self-propelled carrier, and get out to the evac site. This vehicle *will* save lives.
And even without the solar kit, a EV can go a few more miles on a "flat" battery if it's allowed to site a couple of hours. Try doing that with an empty fuel tank.

I will say I'd rather have the Navy come after me if I happen to need divers, however. Still, even a zoomie in a blue suit is better than no help!
