BAE Systems will supply the US Marine Corps with additional Amphibious Combat Vehicles (ACVs) under a $120 million contract announced on 30 October.

This is the company’s third order for Low Rate Initial Production of the vehicle.

The contract is for the ACV personnel carrier variant (ACV-P), an eight-wheeled amphibious assault vehicle capable of transporting personnel from open-ocean ship to shore and conducting land operations. Each vehicle embarks 13 marines in addition to a crew of three.

Current low-rate production is focused on the ACV-P variant. More variants will be added under full rate production to include the command and control, 30mm medium calibre turret and recovery variants under the ACV Family of Vehicles programme.
