Future protected vehicle
Future protected vehicles are lightweight vehicles designed to achieve the effectiveness and survivability of a main battle tank. The MoD has released computer-generated images of what they are hoping companies will design in the future. “These will be the armoured vehicles of the future,” a spokesperson said. “They will be used for the same tasks as current vehicles, but will hopefully be more swift and agile”.
The Ministry of Defence has released pictures of new technology it is developing, or hopes to develop.
The images were released alongside the Defence Technology Plan, which sets out the MoD’s long-term research needs. It aims to encourage tech companies and academics to come up with the next generation of flying, spying robots and new lightweight tanks.
Quentin Davies, minister for defence equipment and support, said exploit new technologies is "vital" for battlefield success.
