Within five years, the Army would like to start testing unmanned remote combat vehicle (RCV) prototypes that are as light and as fast as a Stryker, but provide the same level of firepower as an M-1 Abrams tank.

Within five years, the Army would like to start testing unmanned remote combat vehicle (RCV) prototypes that are as light and as fast as a Stryker, but provide the same level of firepower as an M-1 Abrams tank. Army leaders believe they can quickly field a limited number of unmanned RCVs or components, which soldiers will put through their paces. Soldier feedback and test results could help inform the requirements for the Next Generation Combat Vehicle (NGCV), scheduled to be fielded in 2035. A capability development document for the RCV could be written as soon as 2022.
