BAE Systems showed a modernized armored personnel carrier for the US Marine Corps
The British company BAE Systems has published a photo of a new version of the Amphibious Combat Vehicle (ACV) floating vehicle. The ACV-30 armored personnel carrier (APC) developed for the US Marine Corps received a new turret, Defense Blog writes.
The picture shows a floating armored personnel carrier with a Kongsberg Protector RT20 remotely controlled weapon station, which carries a medium-caliber gun. Also, the car received a set of additional protection.
The Protector RT20 combat module is equipped with an XM813 30 mm automatic cannon and a coaxial machine gun. RT20 allows you to reload the gun while in the car. The module equipment includes a camera, a thermal imager and a laser rangefinder.
Earlier in June, General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) showed a new generation Abrams tank. An image of the car was posted on the company’s website.
At the end of March, it became known that the US Marine Corps would receive an additional batch of ACV amphibious vehicles. Armored personnel carriers will be handed over to the military until 2024.
