The first of 16 ACV 1.1 (Amphibious Combat Vehicle) 8×8 amphibious armoured vehicle prototypes has been rolled out by BAE Systems to the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC).

The USMC awarded BAE Systems a contract for the Engineering, Manufacture, and Development (EMD) phase of the ACV 1.1 program in November 2015, one of two EMD contracts issued.

During this phase, BAE Systems, supported by Iveco Defence Vehicles, will produce 16 prototypes that will be tested by the USMC.
