Products and Services
BAE Systems Land Systems (formerly, Alvis Vickers plc) offers a wide product range that includes Warrior, Challenger 2 and 2e, the long-established Scorpion and Stormer, the Piranha family (built under licence from Mowag), Tactica Internal Security Vehicles, Supacat all-terrain mobile platforms, and armoured engineering support vehicles including the BR90 Bridging System. The strength of the product pedigree is proven by the fact that over 98% of the british army’s armoured vehicles have been built by alvis vickers, now BAE Systems Land Systems.
At present, BAE Systems Land Systems are designing and manufacturing two new vehicles – Titan and Trojan for the Royal Engineers. This is part of a smart programme contracted by the British Army to design and manufacture 66 new engineering vehicles. The UK MoD has recently selected BAE Systems Land Systems (formerly Alvis Vickers) to supply 486 Alvis Multipurpose Light Vehicles (MLV) for the future command and liaison vehicle programme (FCLV). In this role, MLV will be used for a wide range of battlefield missions, with variants for infantry, artillery, armour, engineer and signals users, and will replace the ageing vehicles that are currently used in these roles.
