Oshkosh has submitted its response to the US Army’s request for prototype proposals for the platform prototype design and build phase of its Robotic Combat Vehicle (RCV) programme.

Based on evaluations, up to four vendors could be selected by the US Army to build RCV prototypes by August 2024.

Oshkosh said its solution, developed with Pratt Miller Defense and QinetiQ, provided the ‘most mature and established’ RCV solution leveraging ‘leading-edge’ technology and manufacturing excellence.

Oshkosh chief programmes officer Pat Williams said: ‘The Oshkosh Defense RCV team is pleased to submit our proposal for Phase 1 of the RCV programme.
