WASHINGTON — The Army’s effort to bring a Mobile Protected Firepower (MPF) capability to infantry brigade combat teams -- a near-term priority laid out in the service’s combat vehicle modernization strategy -- has officially kicked off with the release of a request for proposals on Nov. 21.
The service issued several draft RFPs to industry throughout the year to make clear what it is looking for from base requirements to objective features and several companies came forward during the Association of the U.S. Army’s annual conference in October with offerings while others remained tight-lipped.
