The Army is accelerating plans to build early prototypes for its futuristic Next-Generation Combat Vehicle (NGCV) for the 2030s and beyond – a lighter-weight, deployable high-tech armored vehicle platform to control nearby robots, launch attack drones, fire new weapons and outmatch future Russian and Chinese armored vehicles.
Prior thinking had held that the NGCV vehicles, which could likely evolve into a family of future vehicles, would come to fruition in the early 2030s.
