Iveco announced on 4 November that within the framework of the recently awarded US Marine Corps contract to BAE Systems the two companies will deliver additional Amphibious Combat Vehicles under a third order for Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP).

The award is for the ACV Personnel Carrier (ACV-P) variant and represents an important next step on the path to full rate production.

The ACV is an advanced 8x8 open ocean-capable vehicle that is equipped with a six-cylinder, 700hp engine, that according to the companies provides a significant power increase over the legacy fleet currently in service. Current LRIP is focused on the ACV-P variant.

Further special variants will be added under full rate production within the ACV Family of Vehicles programme. Iveco Defence Vehicles and BAE Systems previously received the Lot 1 and Lot 2 awards.
