Oshkosh Defense and WOLF-X both this week announced they're building prototypes for the U.S. Army's Remote Combat Vehicle (RCV) program.
“We are proud to be selected to participate in Phase I of the RCV program,” said Pat Williams, chief programs officer for Oshkosh Defense. “We offer a mature and proven solution, with demonstrated durability and flexibility to incorporate new technologies, to meet the demands of an evolving battlefield.”
The tracked, autonomous vehicles will support varying payloads and advanced weapons systems through scalable, mission-focused modularity. Oshkosh will showcase the RCV capabilities from October 9 – 11 in their booth (#739) at the 2023 AUSA Annual Meeting and Exposition. Earlier this year, Oshkosh displayed the platform’s essential versatility during the 2023 AUSA Global Force Symposium.
"We're delighted our WOLF-X RCV system was selected for the RCV Program's Phase I test and evaluation," said Kevin McSweeney, HDT Global President and CEO. "HDT's industry leadership in the development of innovative robotic solutions is more than 12 years in the making and the WOLF-X illustrates our commitment to solving complex problems and overcoming the challenges our warfighters face on today's modern battlefield. The WOLF-X is a unique and disruptive solution that delivers reliable cutting-edge technology with responsive and accurate battlefield lethality."
The WOLF-X is an 8x8 wheeled Robotic Combat Vehicle with superior transportability and mobility that's rugged, reliable, and easy to operate and maintain. Purpose-built for the US Army RCV program, the WOLF-X exceeds all requirements and is engineered to accommodate future growth requirements. Compact and stealthy, the WOLF-X fits inside a CH-47D in its base configuration yet delivers more than enough power to carry an MK44 30mm chain gun and enhanced armor in its advanced configuration. The WOLF-X delivers powerful cutting-edge technology solutions for today's multi-domain battlefield. With superior performance characteristics optimized for the RCV performance specifications, the WOLF-X is a force-multiplying capability for our nation's Warfighters.
