Lockheed Martin Outlines Ground Combat Vehicles Initiatives
Lockheed Martin is involved with land systems developments for over three decades, with most of the work focused on tracked and wheeled platforms supporting the MLRS program and its derivatives (MLRS, HIMARS, MLRS repair and recovery vehicle. The company is also involved in two major equipment programs in the U.K., namely the Scout SV program, for which they design and develop the turret, weapon systems and electronic architecture, and the Warrior Capability Sustainment program (WCSP) the later program is still awaiting UK MOD approval as Lockheed Martin remains the sole bidder on this program. The Warrior and Scout SV will share the same turret, saving considerably on development logistics and training costs.
