The Pentagon issued to the consortium led by SAIC a contract worth $ 700 million for the development and construction of two prototypes, demonstrators of a promising infantry fighting vehicle, reports bmpd with reference to Defense News.


In the USA, another promising infantry fighting vehicle is being developed.
Possible conceptual appearance of a promising infantry fighting vehicle according to the Next-Generation Combat Vehicle (NGCV) program of the US Army. Image from March of 2017, the official presentation of the NGCV program. The actual appearance of the car may have little to do with this image.

Samples should be ready by the end of September 2022 and submitted for testing in 2023. The development is carried out in the framework of the Next-Generation Combat Vehicle (NGCV) program.

It is reported that the requirements of the US Army for NGCV include a crew of two people and a landing force of six people.

“It is assumed that, in accordance with the" squad-centric, mounted maneuver concept "concept, the infantry squad will thus be placed on two machines that must interact with each other. The machine must be equipped with an 50-mm automatic cannon in an uninhabited combat module and have an HP 1000 engine. for high mobility. The basis of the security of the machine should be an active protection complex, "- says the material.

The resource recalls that the US Army had previously tried to determine the appearance of the new generation BMPs as part of the Future Combat Systems programs (FCS, conducted from 1999 year and was discontinued in 2008 year), and then Ground Combat Vehicle (GCV, discontinued in 2014 year).

    Hear the Pentagon! Can you make this barn even higher? Well, for sure. So to say from RPG 7 with eyes closed. repeatI have one feeling that the Amer. Soldier in the BMP standing (literally) only know how to enter? laughing

      I thought the same thing. The silhouette resembles a Bradley with a body kit and a tower.

      So, probably, they pushed the toilet here too. But how else, if with their tolerance you are going to do "this" thing, and a comrade has already crept up behind. But seriously, Americans have always had a great height. It is worth recalling their "Sherman". According to the recollections of our tankers, they even capsized on turns.

      It is impossible above, it doesn’t fall sideways from difficulties, and if you increase it, it will simply blow by the wind. laughing

    The machine should be equipped with a 50 mm automatic cannon in an uninhabited combat module and have a 1000 hp engine.


    So amphibious BMPs bye, only heavy BMP-Ts that will hold a 50 mm telescopic munition in the frontal projection.


    And in the side projection of at least 12,7 mm.

    KAZ on BMP? Dumb somehow! When landing, you will block, if you lose, you will lose BMP, you will not block - you will lose the landing!

      You don’t need to block anything: catapults will be used for landing, which will deliver paratroopers outside the KAZ strike zone in armored parachute seats! laughing
      Otherwise, what kind of paratroopers are they (inevitably ban) ??? request wassat

        Exactly, then KAZ is not needed, it is enough to throw the paratrooper in the direction of the flying ammunition! One more paratrooper, one less! American soldiers are unkillable, according to Hollywood! wassat

          By the way, yes: in principle, then the Americans can also save on the catapult by reducing the weight of the product and putting some super-pendel-Negro in its place! laughing

    And then what about the landing? They will make a rattletrain equal in weight to 40-45 tons, this is not to go to the grandmother, because ammunition, armor, crew comfort, armored vehicles and exoskeletons, and the fifth to tenth. Then they will think in which plane and how many pieces of this stuff. The Marine Corps will ask for a vertical take-off, floats and a jet propulsion device, something so that it somehow somehow gets to the shore from a landing ship. In general, the concept of this contraption still requires finishing.

      “They will make a rattle-wheel in weight equal to 40-45 tons” - It will not, most likely they will use light but strong materials such as titanium - metal foam is a very light material, it is not inferior to tank armor, and metal composite ceramics will also be used.

      American soldiers can get unique armor. Today, October 13, the press service of the US Army announced that the Army Research Laboratory (Army Research Laboratory) together with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology announced the discovery of unique properties of PUU (poly (urethane urea)).

      While testing a new technology to test the longevity and strength of polymer materials, scientists discovered the unique properties of PUU. With a strong point impact, the material showed hyperelastic properties — it compressed to half its thickness, after which it returned to its original position with minimal loss of shape and original properties.
      The authors of the report said that the PUU elastomer showed a unique feature - the stronger the effect on it, the harder it becomes. In this case, the reverse transition from solid to elastic occurs almost without loss of the initial properties of the material. The US Army Research Laboratory indicates that while they are conducting experiments on a microscopic scale, there is every reason to believe that using PUU it will be possible to create protective material for soldiers that will be 15 times stronger than steel and at the same time flexible as fabric.

      In many countries, polymers are actively used to create protective equipment. For example, ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) is used to create a soft protective layer in bulletproof vests paired with or instead of Kevlar. In addition, UHMWPE is used to create light (floating) armor plates.

    Looks like the American generals have “ravings” that itch at night. We decided to treat.

    belay ... have they cooperated with the Chinese?

    Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC) is a Chinese state-owned automotive company. The largest Chinese automaker. The company was renamed SAIC Motor Corporation Limited

    Oh, how about a caliber of this kind? Like they didn’t have one? Maybe Bofors meant 57x438R ammunition ... after all, 50mm telescopes are only in plans and experiments no more

    ------------------------------
    By the way, they did it about 50-60 years ago approximately. Technologically, it was a very advanced M551 Sheridan tank, but as they say in battles, the concept did not work. So on the same rake will fall again.

    It’s not entirely correct to talk about a tank when it comes to infantry fighting vehicles, but nevertheless the technique was very interesting for its time.
