Technical Challenges of the U.S. Armyńˇ╗s Ground Combat Vehicle Program
Bernard Kempinski (au); Christopher Murphy (au)
The U.S. Army plans to spend about an additional $34 billion in 2013 dollars to develop and purchase a new armored vehicle for its infantry, the Ground Combat Vehicle (GCV). The GCV is supposed to operate across the full range of potential conflict types while providing unprecedented levels of protection for the full squad of soldiers it will carry. To achieve the Armyńˇ╗s goals, the GCV would weigh from 64 to 84 tons, making it the biggest and heaviest infantry fighting vehicle that the Army has ever fielded ńˇţ as big as the M1 Abrams tank and twice as heavy as the Bradley, the Armyńˇ╗s current infantry fighting vehicle. Designing such a vehicle presents important technical challenges. This report provides background information for understanding the technical challenges that the program faces. It presents the Armyńˇ╗s technical goals for the GCV program, examines the threats that the vehicle could face in combat, and explores the variety of approaches that vehicle designers can take to protect the vehicle and its passengers and to meet the Armyńˇ╗s other requirements. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
