Future Combat Systems Manned Ground Vehicles

The Future Combat Systems Manned Ground Vehicles (MGV) was a family of lighter and more transportable ground vehicles developed by BAE Systems Inc and General Dynamics as part of the United States Army's Future Combat Systems (FCS) program. The ground vehicles were to be based on a common tracked vehicle chassis. The MGV program has been superseded by the Ground Combat Vehicle.

The Department of Defense announced budget cuts in April 2009, which resulted in the cancellation of the FCS Manned Ground Vehicles family. The DoD determined that the proposed FCS vehicle designs would not provide sufficient protection against IEDs.

The Army plans to restart from the beginning on manned ground vehicles. The FCS MGVs have been superseded by the BCT Ground Combat Vehicle Program, which was later cancelled in 2014.
