Sound Off! Specialized Platforms or One-Size-Fits-All

Do you build your vehicle fleet on...

... distinct platforms for each system (AFV, tank, arty, etc)?
... a common platform that does many things "well" and nothing "excellent"?

Sound off below!

We should dump all the high priced vehicles for the multi-purposed El Camino.

I'm inclined to think the best way is to have a common platform as long as it makes sense. If the platform doesn't really work for a particular task, then make one that is suited for the task. I think this was forgotten in Iraq and Afghanistan - the HMMWV is not an APC/AFV/etc...
