Bradley AMTV

Info
Manufacturer: BAE Systems Land and Armament  
Product type: Armoured Vehicles  
Name: Ambulance vehicle  

The Bradley Armored Medical Treatment Vehicle (AMTV) is a Bradley A3 based variant which provides medical treatment support to the Heavy Brigade Combat Team (HBCT).

The AMTV provides the capability to deploy forward surgical teams closer to the point of injury, allowing advanced trauma management and intervention treatment that save lives on today’s battlefield. The AMTV provides the same survivability levels to the crew and patient as the Bradley A3. The AMTV is equipped with a quick erectable shelter to provide triage space for long term stationary operation.

The AMTV provides over six feet of interior height for the medic, physician or PA to operate. The AMTV supports the current medical equipment sets, integrates essential patient life saving equipment that includes an ultrasound device, defibrillator, blood refrigerator, oxygen concentrators, and vital sign monitors.

The AMTV can significantly change the way medics are deployed and increase life savings as the surgical team is able to be deployed closer to the point of injury and under protection.

The BFoV includes the following variants:

  • Armored Medical Evacuation Vehicle (AMEV)

  • Armored Medical Treatment Vehicle (AMTV)

  • Bradley Command Post (BCP), Bradley Mortar Vehicle (BMV)

  • Bradley General Purpose Vehicle (BGPV)

Survivability and Force Protection

BFoV platforms possess exceptional survivability against kinetic energy and artillery munitions.

With the common Bradley reactive armor installed, the BFoV will provide the same level of hand-held High-Explosive Anti-Tank (HEAT) and Anti-Tank Guided Missile (ATGM) protection as the BFV. BFoV platform design incorporates all of the Bradley Urban Survivability Kits (BUSK) that have been developed in response to the changing threat environment.

Mobility

The BFoV variants are as mobile and agile as the platforms currently residing in the HBCT formation. This increased mobility over the M113 FoV provides the maneuver commander the freedom to execute operations without being hindered by the inability of his critical battlefield functions to keep up with the rest of the force.

Sustainability, Commonality, and Future Growth

BFoV replacements for the M113 FoV establishes 74% commonality across the HBCT formation thus reducing the HBCT logistics tail, simplifies crew and maintenance training and enables more efficient sustainment and capability upgrades.

Ability to Integrate Enhanced Mission Equipment Packages (MEPs)

The increase in available space provides the ability to integrate more capable MEPs for each mission role.

Onboard medical equipment:

  • Vital signs monitor

  • Oxygen concentrators

  • Suction device

  • Defibrillator

  • Ultrasound device

  • Blood refrigerator
