US troops assess Mobile Protected Firepower prototypes

23rd March 2021 - 12:20 GMT | by Tim Fish in Auckland

Armoured vehicles from BAE Systems and General Dynamics are competing for selection by the US Army.

Prototype platforms in the US Army Mobile Protected Firepower (MPF) programme are undergoing soldier vehicle assessments (SVA) at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

The 12 prototype vehicles from General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) have already been delivered and are completing the SVA conducted by 82nd Airborne Division troops.

Meanwhile, BAE Systems is running on a staggered delivery and SVA schedule but on a different timetable to GDLS, because the US Army is not conducting the SVA of both submissions simultaneously.

MPF is one of four new combat vehicle programmes in the Next Generation Combat Vehicle (NGCV) initiative.
