ACV from BAE Systems. US marines showed their new armored personnel carrier




The US Marine Corps is planning to transfer to a new vehicle as early as 2019. The tender for the supply of new amphibious armored personnel carriers for the Marine Corps was held in 2015 year. It was attended by five companies that submitted their cars to the competition. At the first stage, Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics and Advanced Defense Vehicle Systems, which models did not fit the American marines in a number of parameters, the main of which were cost and security, dropped out of the fight. In the final, the Terrex 2 armored car from SAIC and ACV from BAE Systems was considered. As a result, the command of the Corps preferred the combat vehicle from BAE.

The first delivery of an experimental batch of ACV armored personnel carriers is scheduled for the autumn of 2019, the vehicles will be used to replace the outdated AAV tracked armored personnel carriers.

The ACV floating armored personnel carrier was built on the basis of the Italian Iveco SuperAV BTR, it can hold three crew members and up to 13 paratroopers, and its maximum speed is 120 km / h by land and 11 km / h by water. The power reserve of the machine is 500 km, engine power - 690 hp, buoyancy margin - 21%.

    Is the USA so degraded that it is not able to create a normal amphibious armored personnel carrier?

      You will be surprised, but the previous wheeled armored personnel carrier for the KMP was also a foreign car. And twice: the Morpehov LAV-25 was produced in Canada, and as a girl was Swiss - MOWAG Piranha I. And the racially loyal American Cadillac lost that competition. smile
      The United States can create a floating armored personnel carrier. But it turns out either a LVTP-7 shed, or an EFV at a price of one and a half Abrams.

      It turns out that they were degraded back in the XNUMXth century when Krag-Jorgensen was accepted into service.
      Yes, in general - always someone, but at least once. Half the world with AK rushes, the other half with FN FAL; then the whole world is wetting Maxim from each other; Russia Belgian Nagan produced half a century, and with a three-line dark gray story; the British with a Czech machine gun recently only parted with tears, etc. have numbers.
      And this is only with an arrow for example.

      No. They just do not have such a word "import substitution" and they do not complex to choose the best for their army.

          They tried to buy, but violated their obligations ... However, this is a completely different story.

          Not? Question: Which enterprises produce the howitzer of the British development M777?

          No. India also manufactures purchased weapons at home, but this is never "import protection", but natural imports. By the way, the KAZ purchased from Isaril will be produced (partially) in the United States. Import substitution?

          Well, or American companies simply could not "master" this direction ... IMHO degradation is evident ... because if you are not competitive then something is wrong with you.
          But I am touched by your trait to switch .... the initial message was that the USA could not do it themselves ... although they had done it before ... The Professor appeared and the USA already seemed to just choose the best ...

          USA can produce everything, that is absolutely EVERYTHING. Their technological base, scientific potential and finances allow this. However, the question of expediency arises. They do not have an inferiority complex and they are happy to purchase imports when it suits them. For example, the United States at one time decided that it was not advisable to invest in the production of televisions on its territory and it was better to buy them in Japan. So with the military, Harrier the British, Karl Gustav the Swedes and so on.

      And less will not work. For the dimensions are limited by the required seaworthiness.

        And carrying capacity - EMNIP, armored personnel carrier KMP during landing should deliver not only personnel, but also cargoes for the first echelon.
        I was just counting on something like the LAV-25 - smaller sizes, more quantity. smile

    And then Iveco "lit up" wassat ! Look, they have strong lobbyists, or kickbacks give good! And taking into account the fact that the Americans do not, anyway the result is a car-like monster, besides an amphibian, I want to see a landing version of this armored car! !! wassat

      He weighs 15 tons naked, in principle, it is possible. Only they have no such parachute systems.

        APS up to 27 tons from normal heights. Landing from low altitudes - up to 15 tons with pennies. We have not received such systems. These are regular systems.

        The American national record in this area is 77 thousand pounds or about 35 tons

      We were able to buy the "source" the cheapest way. The Americans, as practice shows, never outsource production. Even a sample completely developed in another country is riveted by themselves.

      In fact, this is the "airborne version" that even allows for over-the-horizon landing. Actually, that's why the apparatus is so big. Seaworthiness

    Professor, when you print the world currency yourself, you can never deny yourself anything. Pouring money into the global economy, you can acquire the best goods and the best minds. Just us and they in different conditions.
