The Army's current effort to replace its legacy fleet of aging combat vehicles is beginning to take shape. With its next-generation combat vehicle cross-functional team, the service has set to work this year releasing solicitations and information to industry in hopes of garnering viable replacement options.
Part of the service's strategy is to integrate robotic combat vehicles that will take most of the brunt of near-peer fights. It is pursuing three variants, which include light, medium and heavy platforms. Requests for white papers were sent out this year on FedBizOpps for the light and medium variants.
