Manufacturer: FNSS Defence Systems Inc  
Product type: Armoured Vehicles  
Name: Infantry fighting vehicle  

The ACV-NG Armored Combat Vehicle (ACV) main chassis is a new development, largely derivative of the ACV-300 vehicle. The ACV-NG offers exceptional automotive performance, cross country mobility and substantial increase in armor and payload carrying capabilities over the ACV-300 vehicle. The ACV-NG features an upgraded power train, so that combining either the 350hp or 400hp Detroit Diesel 6V53TIA electronically controlled engine with the Allison X200-4B hydrokinetic system or alternative powertrains can be offered. These improvements, consist primarily of a longer (stretched) and wider hull, improved final drives, more aggressive suspension (more then 15 inch of road wheel travel), and electronic engine control system.

The ACV-NG increased payload capability will provide for installation of a wide range of turrets, including Anti-Armor, Air Defense and the latest generation of two-man turrets mounting 30mm cannons. Armor protection of the crew is provided by an aluminum-armored hull. Optional add-on armor packages are available, giving protection against 30mm AP and Chemical Effect Weapons. The ACV-NG used components, common to the ACV-300 and the M113 Fleet FoV, ensures the high reliability, availability and maintainability-plus common maintenance techniques and a well-established worldwide logistic support base. The ACV-NG is Roll-on/Roll-off transportable on a C-130 and larger aircraft.
