The US Army has found a replacement for the M113 armored personnel carriers


As part of a tender held in December 2014, a new tracked vehicle based on the M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicle was selected. AMPV will be available in five new versions. On the battlefield, new APCs will be used in conjunction with tanks M1 Abrams and M2 Bradley combat vehicles.

BAE Systems prepared for military testing the first 29 pre-production vehicles in all five versions: armored personnel carrier, command and control vehicle, medical and sanitary vehicle, medical evacuation vehicle, 120-mm self-propelled mortar. If the test is successful, the US Department of Defense will sign a contract with BAE Systems for the delivery of the first batch (289 production machines).

Over the next ten years, the US Department of Defense plans to adopt 2907 units (993 command and control vehicles, 790 medical evacuation vehicles, 386 self-propelled mortars, 216 medical and sanitary machines and the same amount of general-purpose machines). In total, they plan to spend up to $ 113 billion to replace the M13 armored personnel carriers with new cars.

    medical ambulance car, medical evacuation machine
    Specialists tell me - cannot these two functions be performed by one machine?

        Can not. There is no special equipment in evacuation, it just is not needed, we have in this role GTMU and MTLB. And the sanitary - this is essentially a battalion medical center - there is a tent, piling, oxygen. We planned for this role BMM Symphony (based on BTR-80) and BMM-1 based on BMP. Not fused. These are vehicles for action near the front line with armor from bullets / fragments.
        A loaf is a santransport, like the AC-66, it is not for the first line, but for evacuation from the BCH to the regiment's medical center (brigade medrot) and beyond.

    This is not a line infantry armored personnel carrier, but second-line vehicles. Well, if a single transmission with Bradley persists, this will certainly greatly facilitate the maintenance of the park.

      Yes, yes, they didn’t have enough shit “ravings” like supposedly “military” equipment, so they still make “second line” cars. negative It’s all the more clear to you what kind of crap you’ve made yourself BMPs from tanks, and not from this “funny aluminum cardboard” good

      Well, if the granulator will live to see the target in the sight, and there will be no KAZ on the target, then why not?

        Do you even understand what you are writing? fool If an infantry fighting vehicle falls under fire, this is an ASS negative and this must be avoided by all means, the best of which is speed. And thick supposedly armor at slow speed is just a mockery of barmalens and an “invitation” to stick ATGMs into it crying And no KAZ will help you, they will remove the tube and add another rocket - some tracks will remain.

      You might think that the BTR-80 is invulnerable to the RPG of the prodigy)))) On the American BTR-e, at least the DZ is installed in the photo. It is impossible to establish it in Russian BTR-e, as well as on BMP-2.

    As part of a tender held in December 2014, a new tracked vehicle based on the M2 Bradley BMP was selected

    hi M2 can accommodate a crew of three people: commander, gunner and driver, as well as six fully equipped soldiers.
    The total cost of the program is $ 5,664,100,000, and the average unit costs $ 3,166,000

    Only one question is this monster in the photo is clearly “obese!” He will not fall apart on the battlefield by itself from overload? ??
