The Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle (AMPV) is a family of next generation, highly survivable vehicles essential to the future of the U.S. Army.
The Future of Battle This versatile family of vehicles offer significant improvements in mobility, force protection and Soldier survivability, and on-board power to enable the enhanced capabilities required to effectively operate within the Army’s current and future ABCTs.
The AMPV  is the U.S. Army’s program to replace the Vietnam War-era and legacy M113 Family of Vehicles.
The program is essential to the future of the Armored Brigade Combat Team (ABCT) and will fulfill the Army’s strategy of protection, mobility, reliability, and interoperability. The AMPV will be integrated with the ABCT and is required to operate alongside the M1 Abrams tank and the M2 Bradley.
The Army has identified the AMPV as its top priority for the safety and survivability of soldiers and therefore meets tough protection requirements. The AMPV leverages aspects of the Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle and M109A7 self-propelled howitzer, furthering commonality in the ABCT fleet of vehicles.
The Army and BAE Systems are currently in low-rate production of the five AMPV variants. The variants include a general purpose vehicle for troop transport, along with mission command, mortar carrier, medical evacuation and medical treatment versions.
AMPV is a mature, low-risk and cost-effective solution that rapidly delivers continued combat overmatch capability for the Army.
AMPV Roll off event On August 31, BAE Systems delivered the first Armored Multi-Purpose to the U.S. Army in a virtual roll off event. The AMPV is a family of next generation, highly-survivable vehicles essential to the future of the Army.
