The first GCV variant is intended to be the service’s next infantry fighting vehicle, replacing a portion of the current M2 Bradley fleet. The total GCV program price tag is estimated at $37.9 billion, with $7 billion of that needed for research and development and $25.4 billion for procurement.

The Army needs about 30 development models and plans to buy 1,874 production models, according to defense analysts’ estimates.
