The Multi-Role Vehicle - Protected programme is being delivered in two packages. For Package 1, Command, Liaison and Logistic vehicle, the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle, manufactured by Oshkosh, has been identified as the preferred option. No final decision has yet been made. For Package 2, Troop Carrying Vehicle and Future Protected Battlefield Ambulances, a competition is on-going and a decision is anticipated in 2019.

The Mechanised Infantry Vehicle programme is in the assessment phase, concluding in 2019, with the Ministry of Defence taking forward negotiations via the Organisation for Joint Armament Co-operation (OCCAR) to look at options to purchase the vehicles.
