BAE Systems rolls out ACV 1.1 design

14th December 2016 - 09:05 GMT | by Scott Gourley


BAE Systems rolled out its Amphibious Combat Vehicle (ACV) 1.1 prototypes, based on Iveco's SuperAV platform, for the United States Marine Corps on 13 December.

The prototypes will be assessed by the USMC in trials in 2017 alongside the vehicles from rival SAIC, which is based on the Singapore Technologies' Terrex 2 platform.

The ceremony for the ACV 1.1 amphibious, ship-launchable and ship-recoverable 8x8 wheeled combat vehicle launch was held at the BAE’s facility in York, Pennsylvania.

Under separate contracts awarded in late November 2015, BAE Systems and SAIC will each deliver 16 engineering and manufacturing development prototype vehicles for Marine Corps testing.
