Amphibious Combat Vehicle 1.1 by BAE Systems and IVECO Defence

The Amphibious Combat Vehicle 1.1 (ACV 1.1) is a no-compromise 8×8 platform offering a unique mix of true open-ocean amphibious capability, land mobility, survivability, payload and growth potential to accommodate evolving operational needs.

BAE Systems and IVECO Defence have joined forces to present a fully amphibious ACV 1.1 vehicle capable of performing open-ocean ship launch and recovery operations.

It also delivers the inherent internal capacity for 13 embarked Marines plus a crew of three thus meeting the objective requirement for payload. Its unique automotive drivetrain offers superior land mobility across all expeditionary environments while affording MRAP level survivability through its integrated armor design.


ACV 1.1 is fully employable across the Range of Military Operations and complements the expeditionary capabilities of the Marine Air Ground Task Force’s  Assault Amphibious Vehicle (AAV) fleet.
