Scout Specialist Vehicle Simulation
General Dynamics UK - Scout Specialist Vehicle (SV) Simulation -- The SCOUT Specialist Vehicle (SCOUT SV) provides a step-change in the Armoured Fighting Vehicle capability being delivered to the British Army. The SCOUT SV programme includes six variants: Scout Reconnaissance, Protected Mobility Reconnaissance Support (PMRS), Command and Control, Engineering Reconnaissance, Repair, and Recovery. Each SCOUT SV platform variant will be a highly-agile, tracked, medium-weight armoured fighting vehicle, providing British troops with state-of-the-art best-in-class protection. SCOUT SV vehicles are developed upon a highly-adaptable and capable Common Base Platform, maximising commonality in mobility, electronic architecture and survivability that ensures the British Army has a family of world-class platforms. Each SCOUT SV platform variant has extensive capabilities, including acoustic detectors, a laser warning system, a local situational awareness system, an electronic countermeasure system, a route marking system, an advanced electronic architecture and a high performance power pack. The SCOUT SV family of vehicles has growth inherently built in. With an upper design limit of 42 tonnes of driveline capability, scalable and open electronic architecture and a modular armour system, it has enormous potential to combat future threats and incorporate new technology throughout the lifespan of the platform. As a result, SCOUT SV provides the kind of growth capability that the user will need to face the uncertain challenges of Future Force 2020 and beyond. SCOUT SV will replace the less capable CVR(T), providing broad utility throughout the balanced Army 2020 force across all operations. General Dynamics UK was awarded £3.5 billion to deliver 589 SCOUT SV platforms to the British Army on 3 September 2014.
