BAE Systems has unveiled its fourth Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle (AMPV) prototype at the ongoing Eurosatory-2024 exhibition equipped with a common top plate, known as the External Mission Equipment Package (ExMEP), highlighting the vehicle's capability to integrate various equipment packages for international deployment.

This prototype is configured with Oshkosh Defense’s Medium Caliber Weapon System (MCWS), a 30mm weapon system intended for the U.S. Army’s Stryker Brigade Combat Teams. The ExMEP's design allows it to accommodate over 30 different turret systems, enhancing the vehicle's modularity.

In November 2023, BAE Systems integrated and demonstrated a Counter-Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) prototype, and in January 2024, they delivered a 120mm unmanned Turreted Mortar capability to the U.S. Army. The AMPV NxT prototype, featuring a 30mm turret, made its debut at the AUSA Global Force event in March 2024—all utilizing the common top plate.

BAE Systems recently secured a $754 million contract from the U.S. Army to continue producing the AMPV Family of Vehicles (FoV), ensuring a second phase of full-rate production through February 2027. This follows the initial $797 million contract awarded in August 2023.
