Canada has received the first Armored Combat Support Vehicle (ACSV). The formal roll-out of the first vehicle version, the Serop Cargo Vehicle (TCV), took place in Ontario last week.

In August 2019, the Canadian government commissioned General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada to develop and manufacture 360 ​​armored combat support vehicles for the Canadian Army. ACSV is an extension of the existing Light Armored Vehicle (LAV) 6.0 family that is already in service with the Canadian Army. The LAV 6.0 ACSV variants developed and manufactured in Canada have a common base chassis. The existing fleet of LAVs thus reduces training and long-term maintenance costs for common basic configurations.

The new vehicle was developed in conjunction with the Canadian Army and demonstrates the safety and mobility required to operate successfully in operating conditions. The ACSV contract includes eight more variants of the LAV 6.0 vehicle family, including ambulance vehicles, command posts, maintenance and rescue vehicles, logistics and military transport.
