Raytheon-Rheinmetall JV Submits “˜Lynx' Offering for Army's Combat Vehicle Program

A joint venture between Raytheon and Rheinmetall Defense has formally submitted its concept for the U.S. Army's Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle program.

Raytheon Rheinmetall Land Systems offered the tracked and armored Lynx infantry fighting vehicle, which features Raytheon-built advanced weaponry, thermal sights, cyber defense tools, active protection systems and Coyote unmanned aerial vehicles, Raytheon said Monday.

The two companies first announced the JV's establishment this week.

Ben Hudson, global head of vehicle systems at Rheinmetall, said the team expects the Lynx combat vehicle to support the U.S. industrial base in addition to battlefield operations.

“Our team has spent the last year assembling a U.S. supply chain to ensure that Lynx will be built in America by American workers,“ he said.

The OMFV program is aimed at fielding a new platform to replace the Army's Bradley fighting vehicles in 2026.
