AM General has submitted the final proposal for its Blast Resistant Vehicle-Offroad (BRV-O) entrant into the US government’s Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) program, Wednesday.
The BRV-O is a combat system designed and built with a total focus on Warfighter needs, by a team whose sole calling is fielding the world’s best light tactical vehicles, said AM General President and CEO, Charlie Hall in the statement.
AM General’s BRV-O completed the milestones successfully throughout the JLTV program’s recent Engineering, Manufacturing and Development phase where vehicles were subjected to extensive off-road and survivability testing. It can also negotiate open terrain and maneuver effectively in urban environments, and its open-architecture C4ISR capability is already organic to and tested in the vehicle to provide the crew member connectivity in joint and coalition operations.
The BRV-O’s crew capsule, modular armor and all other requirements for force protection in blast tests have been completed. Operationally, if armor is damaged in future combat situations, its separate components can be readily replaced while remaining in the area of operation.
This will dramatically improve readiness and further reduce the BRV-O’s already efficient and low life-cycle support cost profile. The BRV-O is based on more than a decade of AM General’s own investments in research, development and testing for a highly mobile and versatile next-generation light tactical military vehicle and reflects the culmination of more than 50 years of experience in the design, development and production of more than 1.5 million tactical vehicles.
AM General will showcase diverse Family of Light Tactical Vehicles and training operations at the 2013 Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting & Exposition 2013. The next generation U
