The ACV-P personnel version is the cornerstone for a flexible vehicle family that can adapt to changing mission needs and integrates future technology.
BAE Systems and IDV launched their Amphibious Combat Vehicle (ACV) at FEINDEF. The ACV family of amphibious assault vehicles enhances US Marine Corps expeditionary mobility.
The US Marine Corps awarded BAE Systems $256.8m for Amphibious Combat Vehicles in March.
The second-largest market sector will be armored personnel carriers (APCs), at 21.4%, according to GlobalData’s “The Global Military Land Vehicles Market 2023-2033” research.
The US is acquiring the AMPV and Amphibious Combat Vehicle, among other APCs.
“This is the first time the Amphibious Combat Vehicle has been shown outside the United States, and it is a point of pride that it is here in Spain, an important, long-term US and NATO ally,” said BAE Systems vice president of Amphibious projects Garrett Lacaillade.
The ACV can adapt to new technologies. The modular ACV may perform reconnaissance, electronic warfare, anti-air, and Uncrewed Aircraft Systems integration.
The ACV-P, designed for open-ocean deployment, can carry 13 combat-ready Marines and a three-person crew from ship to objective and back. This incredible vehicle enables Marines worldwide by allowing them to quickly and efficiently cross land and water.
ACV variations meet different operating demands. Multiple workstations in the ACV Command and Control version let Marines stay alert in the changing battlespace. However, the ACV recovery version provides critical on-field support, maintenance, and recovery to the whole ACV family.
Kongsberg’s stabilized, medium-calibre Remote Turret System protects and kills the ACV-30. This turret system properly combines firepower and troop capacity, equipping Marines for any challenge.
The ACV series of vehicles gives Marines a versatile, flexible platform for worldwide mission missions by prioritizing adaptability and future technology.
