BAE Systems? fourth Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle (AMPV) prototype is being showcased at Eurosatory this week. Configured with a common top plate, also known as the External Mission Equipment Package (ExMEP), the prototype showcases the vehicle?s ability to integrate capabilities and equipment packages internationally.

This AMPV prototype features Oshkosh Defense?s Medium Caliber Weapon System (MCWS), a 30mm weapon system with planned fielding to the U.S. Army?s Stryker Brigade Combat Teams. The vehicle?s ExMEP can adapt to more than 30 different turret systems and builds on the vehicle?s modularity. This creates a seamless path for international customers to address various mission needs with the AMPV platform. BAE Systems integrated and successfully demonstrated a C-UAS prototype in November 2023, while also integrating and delivering a 120mm unmanned Turreted Mortar capability to the U.S. Army in January 2024.

The AMPV NxT prototype was debuted with a 30mm turret at AUSA Global Force in March 2024?all three prototypes using the common top plate. The five variants currently in production provide enhanced survivability and performance over the legacy M113 FoV. The modular chassis and commonality of the AMPV have proven it to be a low-risk and cost-effective solution that rapidly delivers continued combat overmatch solutions to troop, ready for the battlefield.

The AMPV prototype will be on display in Hall 5A at stand B369. To view the full range of BAE Systems? capabilities featured at Eurosatory.
