Revolutionizing Armored Warfare: Rheinmetall-led Team Lynx Secures OMFV Contracts
In a significant development for the US Army’s modernization efforts, the American Rheinmetall-led Team Lynx has been awarded Phase 3 and Phase 4 contracts for its groundbreaking Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle (OMFV) project.
This momentous step forward marks a substantial leap in replacing the aging Bradley armored fighting vehicle, a stalwart of the US Army’s infantry forces for over four decades. With the awarding of these contracts, the American military is poised to usher in a new era of combat capability, boasting superior protection, firepower, and mobility on the modern battlefield.
A Legacy of Service: The Need for Modernization
The Bradley infantry fighting vehicle has faithfully served the US Army for four decades, but as the demands of modern warfare evolve, so must the tools at its disposal. This recognition has given birth to the OMFV program, a potential $45 billion undertaking spanning five phases.
