The Amphibious Combat Vehicle (ACV) is a program initiated by Marine Corps Systems Command to procure an amphibious assault vehicle for the United States Marine Corps to replace the aging Assault Amphibious Vehicle. A request for information (RFI) was issued to industry on 17 February 2011.

The new ACV 1.1 is a wheeled amphibious combat vehicle and not a tracked as the AAV which is in service with the U.S. marine Corps since many years. The U.S. Marines have operated a fleet of more than 1,000 AAVs over the years.

While the ACV 1.1 is supposed to excel at all-terrain mobility, with a 1.2 version expected to add additional speed and capacity, and a notional ACV 2.0 envisioned swim at high speeds in the water.

The U.S. Marine Corps has now acquire a number of Engineering, Manufacturing & Development vehicles for further testing and evaluation from two Companies, SAIC and BAE Systems.

In December 2016, BAE Systems has delivered 16 amphibious combat vehicle 1.1 prototypes. The ACV 1.1 of BAE Systems is an 8x8 amphibious platform based on an existing vehicle provided by Iveco Defence Vehicles, the IVECO Super AV.

The ACV 1. BAE Systems / IVECO is able to carry a total of 13 military personnel including driver and commander. The vehicle is equipped with a robust 700HP engine, providing a significant power increase over the Assault Amphibious Vehicle currently operated by the Marine Corps.

A blast resistant hull and energy absorbing seats are key elements of the ACV 1.1 survivability solution that delivers superior mine, improvised explosive device (IED), kinetic energy (KE), and overhead protection.
