Armoured Combat Vehicle

WASHINGTON -- The Army will ask industry next month to provide proposals for a lightweight armored combat vehicle known as the Mobile Protected Firepower or MPF vehicle, and plans call for fielding the system under a rapid acquisition effort.

March will be the deadline for MPF proposals and bid samples are to be delivered to test sites in April. The Army will be expecting to see some "mature technologies" on the sample vehicles, a spokesperson said, and may opt for some modified "off-the-shelf" technology to speed up delivery.

The MPF vehicle will provide infantry brigade combat teams with a long-range direct-fire capability for forcible entry and breaching operations. It could very well have a 105mm gun up top, officials said, like the original Abrams tank.

The MPF will fill a capability gap left when the M551 Sheridan Armored Reconnaissance/Airborne Assault Vehicle was retired from regular service in 1996. That vehicle served as a light tank accompanying infantry formations and after being pulled from the regular inventory, it was used for many years at the National Training Center as an opposing force, or OPFOR, armored vehicle.

On February 27, 2002, The Army formally named its new Interim Armored Vehicle the "Stryker" in a ceremony at Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The Stryker is a highly deployable-wheeled armored vehicle that combines firepower, battlefield mobility, survivability and versatility, with reduced logistics requirements.

The vehicle was named in honor of two Medal of Honor recipients: Pfc. Stuart S. Stryker, who served in World War II, and Spc. Robert F. Stryker, who served in Vietnam. The Stryker will be a primary weapons platform for the IBCTs. It will assist the IBCT in covering the near-term capabilities gap between our Legacy Force heavy and light units. The Stryker-equipped IBCT will provide the joint and multinational force commander increased operational and tactical flexibility to execute the fast-paced, distributed, non-contiguous operations envisioned across the full spectrum of conflict.

The Stryker interim armored vehicle (IAV) is a 19-ton, eight-wheeled armored vehicle that provides the Army a family of ten different vehicles on a common chassis. The Stryker comprises two variants - the Infantry Carrier Vehicle (ICV) and the Mobile Gun System (MGS). The ICV has eight additional configurations: Mortar Carrier (MC), Reconnaissance Vehicle (RV), Commanders Vehicle (CV), Fire Support Vehicle (FSV), Medical Evacuation Vehicle (MEV), Engineer Squad Vehicle (ESV), Anti-tank Guided Missile Vehicle (ATGM), and NBC Reconnaissance Vehicle (NBCRV).

Stryker vehicles have robust armor protection, can sustain speeds of 60 miles-perhour, have parts commonality and selfrecovery abilities and also have a central tire inflation system. The Infantry Carrier Vehicle carries a nine-man infantry squad and a crew of two and has a Remote Weapon Station with an M2 .50 caliber machine gun or MK-19, 40mm grenade launcher. Additionally, and just as important, the Stryker family of vehicles stresses performance and commonality that reduces the logistics footprint and minimize sustainment costs. The same engine used in the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) powers the Stryker. The Stryker can reach speeds in excess of 60 mph with a range exceeding 300 miles on 53 gallons of fuel.

The highly-mobile UK vehicles have been sold to the Latvian army in a package worth 39.4 million, including their overhaul and refurbishment. The vehicles have previously been used on operations in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iraq and Afghanistan.

The purchase of these vehicles will allow the Latvian armed forces to better transport infantry, reconnaissance teams, air defence sections and mortar fire controllers as well as provide vital battlefield capabilities including ambulances, armoured command vehicles and armoured recovery vehicles.

Textron Systems' COMMANDO family of armored vehicles features the ultimate package of combat-proven lethality, survivability, mobility and sustainability. The modern design protects troops within a comfortable interior during engagements. Whether serving as a combat-proven infantry fighting vehicle (IFV), performing reconnaissance or as a command-and-control vehicle, COMMANDO vehicles are ready for action. With a wide range of configurations, it is also a proven ambulance, armored personnel carrier (APC) and support utility vehicle.

Tested and proven in the toughest environments, Textron Systems' COMMANDO Select gives operators the ability to go almost anywhere and perform nearly any mission. Our vehicles are designed to be easy to operate and maintain with readily available parts, training and service support.

COMMANDO Elite vehicles are highly protected and capable vehicles, providing superior direct-fire and mine blast protection. These vehicles come equipped with our latest drive train enhancements, making them fast and highly maneuverable in a wide range of environments.

Lynx KF31Rheinmetall presented its Lynx KF31 infantry fighting vehicle at Eurosatory 2016 for the very first time. Agile, hard-hitting and highly protected, this state-of-the-art tracked armoured vehicle is destined to dominate the modern battlefield, lending itself to operations from peace enforcement to high-intensity combat. The Lynx KF31 is weighing up to 38 tonnes, and can seat 3+6 soldiers.

Rheinmetall's Lynx is the most advanced infantry fighting vehicle available to global defence customers. Its next-generation design and future focused modularity are already proving highly desired by countries currently modernizing their IFV fleets.

Developed by General Dynamics UK, the AJAX programme includes six variants: AJAX, ARES, APOLLO, ATHENA, ATLAS and ARGUS. Each AJAX variant will be a highly-agile, tracked, medium- weight armoured fighting vehicles, providing British troops with state-of-the-art best-in-class protection.

Stryker is a deployable fighting vehicle that is more lethal than light vehicles like Humvees, yet is lighter and more maneuverable than heavyweight combat vehicles like the M1 Abrams main battle tank.

Most Stryker vehicles and vetronics today have the Protector M151 Remote Weapon Station with .50-cal M2 machine gun, 7.62 mm M240 machine gun, or Mk-19 automatic grenade launcher. Some heavily armed versions have a 105-millimeter main gun, similar to a tank.

The Stryker A1 also establishes the framework for the Vehicular Integration for C4ISR/EW Interoperability (VICTORY) vetronics industry-standard architecture for networking integration and data sharing among the vehicle's common crew stations. The new Stryker version also provides Gigabit Ethernet capability.

The Stryker A1 has a 910-amp alternator to support future electrical power upgrades for future network equipment; an enhanced power distribution unit chassis upgrade; increased chassis payload capacity from 55,000 pounds to 63,000 pounds; and upgrades to its driveline to support an in-vehicle network architecture.

Addition of 30-millimeter cannon turret to the Stryker can boost the vehicle's firepower substantially. A 30-millimeter cannon bullet is about 10 inches long, while a .50 caliber machine gun bullet is about five inches long, and a 7.62 millimeter machine gun bullet is about three inches long.

While .50 caliber and 7.62 millimeter machine guns primarily shoot anti-personnel bullets for fighting enemy soldiers, the 30-millimeter cannon is an armor-piercing round that is effective against other armored vehicles and fortified bunkers.

The Stryker armored combat vehicle is named for two American servicemen who posthumously received the Medal of Honor: Private First Class Stuart S. Stryker, who died in World War II, and Specialist Four Robert F. Stryker, who died in the Vietnam War.

Modernization of aging combat/armored vehicles along with introducing new warfighter protection, lethality, and maneuverability capabilities across all domains, including the fundamental land domain, has become key priority area for the U.S. Military.

Committed to the objective of ensuring that the numbers of conventional armaments and equipment limited by the Treaty within the area of application of this Treaty do not exceed 40,000 battle tanks, 60,000 armoured combat vehicles, 40,000 pieces of artillery, 13,600 combat aircraft and 4,000 attack helicopters,

1. Each State Party shall carry out the obligations set forth in this Treaty in accordance with its provisions, including those obligations relating to the following five categories of conventional armed forces: battle tanks, armoured combat vehicles, artillery, combat aircraft and combat helicopters.

(C) The term "battle tank" means a self-propelled armoured fighting vehicle, capable of heavy firepower, primarily of a high muzzle velocity direct fire main gun necessary to engage armoured and other targets, with high cross-country mobility, with a high level of self-protection, and which is not designed and equipped primarily to transport combat troops. Such armoured vehicles serve as the principal weapon system of ground-force tank and other armoured formations.

Battle tanks are tracked armoured fighting vehicles which weigh at least 16. 5 metric tonnes unladen weight and which are armed with a 360-degree traverse gun of at least 75 millimetres calibre. In addition, any wheeled armoured fighting vehicles entering into service which meet all the other criteria stated above shall also be deemed battle tanks.

(D) The term "armoured combat vehicle" means a self-propelled vehicle with armoured protection and cross-country capability. Armoured combat vehicles include armoured personnel carriers, armoured infantry fighting vehicles and heavy armament combat vehicles.

The term "armoured personnel carrier" means an armoured combat vehicle which is designed and equipped to transport a combat infantry squad and which, as a rule, is armed with an integral or organic weapon of less then 20 millimetres calibre.

The term "armoured infantry fighting vehicle" means an armoured combat vehicle which is designed and equipped primarily to transport a combat infantry squad, which normally provides the capability for the troops to deliver fire from inside the vehicle under armoured protection, and which is armed with an integral or organic cannon of at least 20 millimetres calibre and sometimes an antitank missile launcher. Armoured infantry fighting vehicles serve as the principal weapon system of armoured infantry or mechanised infantry or motorised infantry formations and units of ground forces. 041b061a72
