Close Combat Vehicle (CCV) Project

Context

The Government of Canada, based on the recommendation of the Canadian Armed Forces, has decided not to proceed with the Close Combat Vehicle (CCV) procurement project. Significant capability improvements have served to address a number of force protection concerns that existed when the CCV project was first conceived.

The CCV project was part of the family of land combat vehicles, announced in July 2009.
