US Army received the first batch of new-generation AMPV armored vehicles

(ORDO NEWS) — The US Army has delivered the first batch of Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle (AMPV) armored vehicles. They were developed as a replacement for the outdated M113 armored personnel carrier.

A batch of AMPV armored vehicles was delivered to the 2nd Armored Brigade, 3rd Infantry Division of the US Army at Fort Stewart for initial operational testing. This month, soldiers will begin to learn how to serve and use new models.

AMPV is a new generation tracked armored vehicle family developed by BAE Systems to replace the M113 tracked fleet.

In 2014, BAE Systems received a contract worth up to $1.2 billion from the US Army for the development and small-scale production of the AMPV. The first production car was built in 2020.

The Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle uses an “evolutionary” approach: solutions proven on past combat vehicles such as the Bradley have been embodied on it. At the same time, AMPV meets the latest requirements for protection and maneuverability.

The new platform will be supplied to the US Army in five versions: an armored personnel carrier, a command and control vehicle, a medical vehicle, a medical evacuation vehicle and a 120-millimeter self-propelled mortar.
