At the request of Canadian-American Security Review (www.casr.ca), we prepared an analysis of what might follow the demise of the demise of the US Army’s Future Combat System (FCS) program, and what relevance that might have for the Canadian Army.

In our estimation, the final end of the FCS has certainly opened opportunities for far more practical plans for armored vehicle modernization, as the US Army has replaced its formerly all-encompassing and over-reaching approach with a vector of perhaps ten separate efforts to update, extend, and recapitalize its fleet. For Canadian purposes, the large sums being invested in even these more modest efforts may be particularly useful beyond just American needs. In particular, upgrades to the Stryker, and development of so many designs for the MRAP All Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV) and Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) programs, may be very valuable to two specific Canadian Army vehicle initiatives: LAV-III modernization and the Tactical Armored Patrol Vehicle (TAPV).

In the last several pages, we comment on the implications for the industry, and offer advice to the Canadian Department of National Defence on how to manage its limited equipment acquisition budget and staff.
