(NSI News Source Info) PARIS, France - June 15, 2010: BAE Systems and Iveco Defence Vehicles have signed a licensing agreement to form the basis of a business arrangement for the pursuit of the U.S. Marine Corps Personnel Carrier (MPC) program, with a vehicle based on theSUPERAV 8x8.
In 2009, Iveco Defence Vehicles unveiled the SUPERAV 8x8 as the newest MPC candidate. The SUPERAV has capabilities based on previously fielded vehicles that include enhanced survivability, mobility performance, and amphibious capability with growth potential.
The MPC is designed to fill the medium-armor ground vehicle gap and complements the capabilities of the Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV) and the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV). It will be a flexible and highly mobile asset for the Marines that will be well protected, sustainable, networked and include a strong swimming capability.
Both BAE Systems and Iveco Defence Vehicles have extensive experience across a range of mine-protected and armored vehicles, including several 8x8 models. This breadth of experience positions the team to jointly address the specific requirements of the MPC program.
