The U.S. Army’s G-8 discussed a new strategy for the Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle, following lessons learned after its first request for prototypes was canceled earlier this year. The OMFV, which will replace the Bradley Fighting Vehicle, remains on track to be fielded to both active and National Guard armored brigade combat teams starting in the fiscal year 2028. Sean Kimmons, Army News Service, reports.

Mack Defense has selected Hutchinson Industries as the provider of complete wheel assemblies, beadlocks and thermal hub covers for the Mack Defense M917A3 heavy dump truck (HDT). “Wheeled military vehicles like the M917A3 require specialized protection to help maintain mobility in harsh operating environments,” said David Hartzell, president, Mack Defense. “Mack Defense chose Hutchinson to help make sure the M917A3 is equipped with the right components to get the job done.”
