Just a note, the Phoenix is actually upside-down in those shots. Since it hovers/flies, the turret needs to be on the bottom.

will there be a chance to recover and repair an inoperable UGV? Understandable if not

That one's still up for discussion in the design team.

I thought about 1x1 UGVs pros and cons and ended up with an idea (yes, I know you have plenty of them, but still :) ). What is the main difference between soldier and 1x1 UGV? Firepower and toughness. So, we take a soldier, give him heavy armor with exoskeleton (IIRC we have proposals for those), and give him more powerful weapon. And here comes an idea: make this weapon with backpack - like in "ghostbusters": some kind of accelerator with power supply on the back (weight doesn't matter as we have exoskeleton), and some kind of ejector in hands. Like this it can be done more powerful without "realism" issues. Will do for "heavy particle weapon" or "heavy plasma" or whatever.

The resulting unit won't differ from 1x1 UGV in any way, and still be a soldier.

It may still use the visible light spectrum for its cameras, in which case headlights are its equivalent of a flashlight.

Other things we would like for UGVs:
UGV grenade launcher -- yes.
UGV plasma cannon -- yes.
UGV particle beam -- no.


So... why no Particle Beam? The write-up uses the exact same Particle Beam that your soldiers can use, so it's not like PHALANX has to know how to build Particle Beam technology or something, nor is it unbalancing because it doesn't deal any more damage.
