I've heard rumors that you can use the Metal Gear Sahelanthropus on missions as a vehicle but that all enemies are on permanent high alert. Can anyone confirm this?

Spoiler ahead. Not that I care about spoilers, but I know some of you freak out when you read something ahead. Proceed with caution.
There's something called Battle Gear, which is customizable later on. Huey will work on development in the R&D sector. Not sure about what triggers the development speed, since you need to visit R&D to see the progress.
Mine is still in development, so can't tell you much about what it can or can not do.

Apparently it cannot be driven by you, it's only for the AI missions that you can send your staff on.
I was kinda disappointed when I saw that you cannot use it in your missions.

So Ocelot specifically said I can customize Battle Gear when it's done.
Now I've noticed when I send my troops on mission, it included Walker Gear and Battle Gear. Yet...Well, simply put, I can't find the option to customize my Battle Gear. Did I miss something?

Maybe Battle Gear is actually Battle Dress? That armor you can select to wear? You might be able to change its color and so on.

I sure hope we can use it, because why make something so AWESOME like that only for us not to be able to use it.
Now I think mine may be finished because I went to visit it, Otacon showed it animated- hovering and attached that Mega rail-gun to it.
But yet I still see the step ladder behind it, however Otacon did mention that I have to send it on a mission for a test run, but I cannot figure out how or where you go to send it For that mission.
Anyone have an idea where I go for that?

It's your regular Combat team send on mission.
Under the bottom right corner, you'd see the Battle Gear's outline. Meaning it's sending out as part of the team.
Though I'm still unsure about how Ocelot 'confirmed' saying we can customize it. Perhaps it's another 'cut' feature that'll later be placed back into the game? Spoiler:
such as mission 51?

ok so I open up the IDroid and go to the missions tab then the Combat Deployment tab?
I still don't see it on there, maybe I haven't sent them on enough missions yet.
