The USMC has ordered 14 additional full-rate production ACV-C vehicles from BAE Systems.

The USMC is to receive an additional 14 full-rate production Amphibious Combat Vehicles (ACVs) from BAE Systems Land & Armaments under a new $89.47 million contract modification from Marine Corps Systems Command.

The ACV-Command (ACV-C) variants will be produced by July 2024, the DoD announced on 9 May.

The ACV programme is already in full-rate production with BAE Systems, and the company is also under contract to deliver the ACV personnel variant (ACV-P) as well as ACV-C.

BAE Systems is also under contract to design and develop the ACV-30 cannon-armed variant, and the USMC could decide to add a new variant with a C4/reconnaissance UAS payload, pending the results of a first-phase Armored Reconnaissance Vehicle study.
