BAE and Iveco to develop new USMC amphibious vehicle variants

27th June 2019 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


BAE Systems and Iveco Defence Vehicles have jointly been awarded a $67 million contract modification by the US Marine Corps to develop new variants for the Amphibious Combat Vehicle (ACV) family of vehicles.

In order to enhance battlefield situational awareness and firepower for the USMC, they will design and develop the command (ACV-C) and 30mm medium caliber cannon (ACV-30) variants of the vehicle.

The ACV-C incorporates seven work stations to provide situational awareness and control, while the ACV-30 integrates a 30mm cannon to provide the lethality and protection the USMC needs while also leaving room for troop capacity and payload.  

BAE was previously awarded a low-rate initial production contract in June 2018 for the personnel variant (ACV-P), and the marine corps has announced that the ACV has successfully completed anticipated requirements testing, and it would no longer be pursuing a previously anticipated incremental ACV 1.1 and ACV 1.2 development approach

The programme is now known as the ACV family of vehicles, which includes the multiple variants.
