Armoured Combat Support Vehicle

Replace Existing Systems


The project will replace the M113 Tracked Light Armoured Vehicle and Light Armoured Vehicle II (BISON) fleets.


The project will deliver a protected support vehicle to sustain the Canadian Army light and heavy armoured fighting vehicle fleets on domestic and expeditionary operations. It will be a general-utility combat support vehicle that will fulfill a wide variety of support roles on the battlefield, including but not limited to protected ambulance, command and control, engineer, and maintenance repair teams. It will provide a high degree of maneuverability and protection to its crew and payload.
