MDM 2017: BAE Systems highlights ACV C2 possibilities

2nd October 2017 - 13:00 GMT | by Scott Gourley in Quantico, Virginia


BAE Systems used the Modern Day Marine venue at Quantico, Virginia to highlight ‘the state of the possible’ for a command and control variant of its USMC Amphibious Combat Vehicle (ACV 1.1), now in engineering and manufacturing development.

‘We have taken our demonstrator vehicle and reconfigured it as an ACV Command and Control (C2) vehicle,’ explained John Swift, ACV programme manager at BAE Systems. 

‘We wanted to show the flexibility in the design of our vehicle,’ Swift said, adding that the demonstrator conversion was accomplished in less than three months.

‘That’s from concept to design to build,’ he said.
