The ACV (Armored Combat Vehicles) is the general name for a 15-19 ton class modem high performance vehicles, derived from the highly successful FNSS ACV. These vehicles have proven themselves with a number of armies worldwide. ACV-1Ý offers the latest developments in high value vehicle performance for internal volume and payload but maintains the advantages of commonality with ACV family of vehicles.
The ACV-1Ý chassis is a derivative of the ACV-15 FoV's which is already in the inventory of Turkish Armed Forces, Malaysian Armed Forces, United Arab Emirates Armed Forces and Philippines Armed Forces.
The differences between ACV-15 and ACV-19 consist primarily of a longer (stretched) hull (6 road wheels), heavy duty final drives, more aggressive suspension. The ACV-19 offers more volume under armour; more payload capacity than ACV. This means that the ACV-19 chassis can carry high payloads such as greater payload turrets, and still provide the comparable performance as a standard ACV-15. In addition, it is 90% spare parts commonality to ACV-15.
The ACV-19 chassis are provided with a unique, space laminated armor system combining steel and aluminum technology to provide a high level of armor protection against direct KE threats. Also, the hull provides protection against mines.
The vehicle shall be upgradeable with growth potential. The vehicle configuration can be tailored in accordance with user requirements into a true family of vehicles which can be utilized by cavalry, infantry, MBT's support vehicles and artillery.
