     BAE Systems rolled out the first prototype AMPV Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle to the U.S Army during a ceremony at the company’s Yirk, Pennsylvania Facility.

     The AMPV is a highly flexible vehicle that includes five variants and is designed to replace the M113 family of vehicles. It’s a mature solution that leverages proven Bradley AIFV and M109A7 Self-Propellede Howitzer designs.

     Il December 2014, BAE Systems was awarded a contract worth up to 1,2 billion dollars from the Army for the EMD, Engineering, Manufacturing and Development, and LRIP, Low-Rate Initial Production, phases of the AMPV program. The initial award of 383 million dollars, under the EMD phase, is for production of 29 vehicles across all of the variants: general purpose, mission command, mortar carrier, medical evacuation and medical treatment.
