Minimizing sources seems reasonable - it means fewer people needed to make it happen, better security. That doesn't necessarily mean minimizing manufacturers though, it could meaning minimizing national suppliers (i.e., raiding the US arsenal) or other dealers.

I would also note that the ripsaw, while awesome is probably not very survivable or rugged - it was built to be a recreational vehicle for the rich, after all!

The Ripsaw MS2 is still being evaluated by the US Army as a UGV. The RV for the rich came later. But regardless, even the military version has no armor. As a Commando Scout replacement, it would seem a step back. XR311 replacement maybe.

honestly it outperforms the CG scout. the slightly lighter armor can still withstand most threats a scout car would be expected to. the remote operated turret can be equipped with an M242 to handle any firepower gap. it can outrun the majority of ground combat vehicles and is amphibious unlike the scout. best of all unlike the scout you can carry essential tools and equipment or even wounded personnel.

Calling it lightly armored is being generous. The cockpit on the MS2 is basically just a roll cage. All the published specs on the MS1 and MS2 call it unarmored. The Ripsaw is great as a UGV, but if you are thinking of using it as a team vehicle it just don't see it performing well. At least not in terms of giving protection to the team from opportunistic fire. If you just want a gun platform that can carry stuff, then it might fill the bill.
