American Rheinmetall Vehicles, LLC, a subsidiary of Germany-based Rheinmetall Defence, is teaming with Textron Systems in pursuit of the US Army’s Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle (OMFV) programme. This involves forming a US industry team that will consist of numerous leading US defence companies, including Raytheon Technologies, who are coming together as “Team Lynx.” Textron Systems will be a vital member of the team, bringing with it exceptional land systems technology development and production capabilities developed over decades as a major combat platform provider to the US Armed Forces. American Rheinmetall Vehicles will lead Team Lynx in offering the US Army a next-generation solution for the OMFV programme that features a mature, game-changing platform with a purposeful, future-proof, modular design.
The Way Forward
The US variant of the LYNX KF41 will redefine the modern battlefield and enable the US Army to satisfy its number two modernisation priority, a next-generation combat vehicle with superb protection, mobility, growth, and lethality capabilities for decades to come. The vehicle’s Modular Open Systems Architecture (MOSA), coupled with substantial growth potential in power, weight and volume, will enable the American Lynx KF41 variant to confront the challenges of the future battlefield like no other.
