Overt Defense has an item concerning the Spanish 8x8 combat vehicle. The IFV version was shown with the usual 30mm Bushmaster II in an RCWS, but there is an interesting paragraph later in the account concerning the cavalry version:

The manned turret for the VCR cavalry variant will only be selected in 2022. The contenders were not detailed, with it only being noted that the Leonardo HITFIST manned turret currently demonstrated on one of the VCR prototypes may not be the final configuration. Interestingly, it was said that the cavalry turret requirements stipulated a “minimum” of 30mm caliber for the cavalry variant’s main gun.
