RESTON, Va - (BUSINESS WIRE)--Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) announced today that it will compete to rapidly develop combat vehicle prototypes to meet the U.S. Army’s need as part of the Mobile Protected Firepower (MPF) program. SAIC, together with ST Kinetics and CMI Defence, will develop and integrate a vehicle that offers the Army an innovative solution that provides infantry forces access to combat environments in 21st century operations.

“As a systems integrator, SAIC can deliver an alternative option to the Army that brings together best-of-breed, non-developmental components to field a new combat vehicle quickly that meets critical requirements,” said Jim Scanlon, SAIC senior vice president and general manager of the Defense Systems Customer Group. “Rapid delivery of this MPF solution is essential to the Army and our solution is extremely well-positioned to meet these requirements and deliver a modernized vehicle to soldiers.”

Based on ST Kinetics’ Next Generation Armored Fighting Vehicle (NGAFV) chassis and CMI Defence’s Cockerill Series 3105 turret currently in production, SAIC will compete for an Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) contract to build prototypes that incorporate a lightweight combat vehicle design while still providing mobility and lethality for Army units. Such a vehicle will enable freedom of movement and action, specifically for restrictive, urban operations but tailorable for full-spectrum combat environments.

“SAIC has developed a superior solution that integrates mature, currently produced offerings from our industry partners, ST Kinetics and CMI Defence. By marrying ST Kinetics’ chassis with CMI Defence’s turret, SAIC can deliver a reliable vehicle that gives soldiers a new capability in combat environments,” said Scanlon.

“ST Kinetics is indeed honored to team up with SAIC again to participate in another major defense program in the U.S. Our NGAFV is an advanced system that is fully digitalized, highly mobile and developed to support networked knowledge-based warfighting. A fleet of seven prototypes had been developed and robustly tested over several years. As the NGAFV will be in production soon, this platform brings minimal technical risk and a robust supply chain to the MPF program,” said Dr. Lee Shiang Long, president of ST Kinetics.

President of CMI Defence Jean-Luc Maurange added, “We are extremely proud to participate in the MPF program with SAIC, especially as this is the 200th anniversary of our company’s founding. Our highly innovative turret and gun solution is already qualified and in production, which translates into a high level of manufacturing readiness, low technical risk and ensures our ability to meet the compressed program schedule required by the U.S. Army.”

SAIC’s entry into the MPF competition builds on continued momentum in combat vehicle modernization, to include the company’s recent collaboration with the Detroit Automotive Technologies Consortium (DATC) and the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) to assist in the development of the next-generation combat vehicle - experimental prototype (NGCV-EP). This recent success expands upon SAIC’s proven experience in modernizing combat and tactical vehicles including Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles for the Army, and Amphibious Combat Vehicles 1.1 (ACV) and Amphibious Assault Vehicles with Survivability Upgrades (AAV-SU) for the U.S. Marine Corps.

    1. Prospek tank atau ranpur rantai berat medium memang lagi berkembang. China membuat VT-5 mountain tank. Amrik Griffin dan tank di post ini. Polandia, Anders dan tank siluman PL-1. Israel, platform multiguna Carmel. Dan Indonesia, tank medium Black Tiger.

    1. Kiranya tank berat medium (20-40 ton) abad 21 yg akan diproduksi masal pertama adalah tank Pl-1 Polandia. Jadi bukan Pindad yg inisiatif. Saya tahu ada tank lain seperti TAM, CV90105, dll; tapi MT yg akan diproduksi masal pertama di abad 21 adalah Pl-1 Polandia itu.

  3. Naah kaan... US Army minta Light tank persis info yg sy kasih kemari dulu kalo future war keberadaan light atau medium tank bakal dominan.

    Ini bakalan jadi saingan Harimau Hitam pastinya dan dari sini kebaca kalo strategi Pindad Fnss memproduksi medium tank itu sudah di arah kebijakan yg benar dan prospektif.

    Btw... coba lihat hull depannya yg nutupin rantai roda, bandingkan dengan rantai roda yg sangat terbuka milik Harimau Pindad ? Sangat berbeda bukan ? Dan terlihat lebih dinamis dan streamline konsep tank yg ini.

    1. karena tank pindad belum diberikan lapisan AMAP mas bro, coba liat prototipe yang kuning di animasi video, tu yang sudah ketutup AMAP...

      Hapus
    2. malah jelek bro kalau medium tank kita modelnya seperti itu, medium tank kita modelnya hull depan mendongak ke atas mungkin agar lebih nikmat saat di bawa masuk kelumppur. kalau medium tank st kinetic menurutku nggak cocok untuk medan berlumpur dan perbukitan, kalo di perang kota sih cocok .dan desainya mirip tank maus ww2

      Hapus
    3. Sepakad mas. Tapi kalau tujuannya buat di jual ke negara lain juga sy pikir harus kompromi dikit modelnya mas.. harus dipikirkan model yg lebih universal bisa dipakai di hutan, gurun atau perang kota.

      Tak bisa dipungkiri untuk model Harimau saat ini sudah paling pas di medan tempur Hutan indonesia dgn roda lebih keluar dari tudung spakboardnya tapi kalau Pindad FNSS berencana jual ke negara lain maka harus rubah sedikit depannya supaya lebih match dgn tampilan tank2 umum seperti leopard abrams dll.

    1. If they dont changed anything inside the turret, both is on par. Both uses Cockerill 3105 turret (105 mm gun), that can achieve 42° elevation to indirectly fire the enemy. Also, this turret can be paired with UAV so this indirect fire capability is significantly boosted (search video "CMI turret UAV pairing"). Maybe USA will use APS in this tank, but even Abrams are still waiting for using APS.

  8. kalo liat di dummy NGAFV+cmi turet, dipoto atas, perhatikan turet bagian blakangnya terlihat lbh panjang(sori gak jelas) dari ujung pantat tank.

    mnurut guwe sich enggak bgt disainnya.
    kerna akan mempengaruhi kestabilan ketika melakukan penembakan, apalagi pd saat jalan sambil nembak. bisa nungging kaliyak, akibat recoil penembakan haha!😜

    sebaiknya NGAFV menggunakan kubah senjata ukuran kecil 20-30mm.
    krn setau guwe dr awal di disain bukan sebagi medium tank, begitchu haha!😊😊😊

    1. Coba anda lihat bagian depannya. Itu turret posisinya kebelakang, karena mesinnya ada di depan. Sama seperti Merkava Israel.

      Hapus
    2. tentu tau, amx13,badak mesinnya di depan jg.

      ketika meriam hadep depan(kiri), itu turet bagian buntutnya lewatin hull/body blakang tank coba perhatikan baik2.

      jd yg guwe gak suka itu, posisinya terlihat offside, gt aja sich om, haha!

    3. nach ini ada contoh lebih nyata, di AUSA 2017
