That's a standard looking drivetrain under there. If they're going to keep up with the humvee, they need rim drive. Its not even keeping up with the hummer, the consumer equivalent. Also the box looks too curvy and not using available space.

It was part of a project to study the deep sea currents of the North Sea so at the youngest (there were several batches sent out from 1904 to 1906) it spent at least 108 years at sea (beating the previous documentable record by several years).
