Textron Systems has announced that it has been selected by the Canadian government for the Canadian Forces Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicle (TAPV) programme. The contract, announced 8 June, 2012, provides that the Textron TAPV Team will manufacture 500 vehicles, with an option for up to 100 more.

The Textron team is led by Textron Systems Canada, together with Textron Marine & Land Systems and Rheinmetall Canada. Textron Systems will act as prime contractor on the programme, providing overall TAPV programme and configuration management, act as design authority for change management, coordinate vehicle integration activities by Canadian subcontractors, and manage the in-service support contract.

Textron’s TAPV is designed to be ‘the most reliable and technologically advanced vehicle of its kind’, and has successfully completed extensive testing to confirm its ballistic, blast, mobility and reliability levels, according to the company.
