BAE Systems gets another ACV contract

27th February 2020 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


BAE Systems has been awarded a $113.5 million contract by the US Marine Corps to provide 26 Amphibious Combat Vehicles (ACV).

The contract brings the total vehicle order to 116 and will see the replacement of the legacy fleet of Assault Amphibious Vehicles, which were also built by BAE Systems.

The company describes the ACV as a ‘highly mobile, survivable and adaptable platform for conducting rapid ship-to-shore operations.’ It consists of a command and control vehicle, a 30mm medium-calibre turret and a recovery vehicle variant.

Production is underway at various locations across the US including Aiken, San Jose, Stafford and York.
