Series Hybrid Electric Is to Serve the U.S. Army for a Generation

BAE Systems is getting set for first quarter trials of its 60- to 70-ton, 1,400-horsepower Ground Combat Vehicle for the U.S. Army. The twin-engined, series hybrid electric is to see service for 30 years or more, and its versatile architecture could find application not only for the armored troop carrier in development now, but for new Army tanks and heavy recovery (tow) vehicles, says program manager Deepak Bazaz.
