BAE Systems submits bid for US Marine Corps amphibious combat vehicle 1.1. program
BAE Systems announced yesterday, May 20, it is submitting bid for USMC future amphibious combat vehicle. BAE Systems’ ACV 1.1 solution has completed thousands of miles of mobility testing and a full range of amphibious operations, including demonstrations of launch and recovery. The company’s solution, built from the ground up to be a truly amphibious vehicle, would provide a significant benefit to the Marine Corps’ current and future needs.

BAE Systems is teamed with IVECO Defence, which brings additional proven experience having designed and built more than 30,000 multi-purpose, protected, and armored military vehicles in service today. The team’s U.S.-built, non-developmental solution has completed thousands of miles of mobility testing and a full range of amphibious operations, including demonstrations of launch and recovery of the vehicle from amphibious ship test platforms.

Our solution will provide the Marine Corps with a truly amphibious capability, designed into our solution and backed by our more than 70 years of experience designing and building amphibious vehicles,” said Deepak Bazaz, director of new and amphibious vehicles at BAE Systems. “Our ACV 1.1 proposal offers a mature, cost-effective solution with growth capacity to meet future Marine Corps needs.”

The Marine Corps plans to award up to two initial contracts later this year to deliver 16 engineering, manufacturing, and development prototypes beginning nine months after the contract award.

BAE Systems and IVECO Defence have joined forces to present a fully amphibious ACV 1.1 vehicle capable of performing open-ocean ship launch and recovery operations.

 

It also delivers the inherent internal capacity for 13 embarked Marines plus a crew of three thus meeting the objective requirement for payload. Its unique automotive drivetrain offers superior land mobility across all expeditionary environments while affording MRAP level survivability through its integrated armor design.

 

ACV 1.1 is fully employable across the Range of Military Operations and complements the expeditionary capabilities of the Marine Air Ground Task Force’s Assault Amphibious Vehicle (AAV) fleet.
