Eight firms are chasing a multi-million pound British Army requirement for hundreds of new command vehicles.

The project does not have an endorsed army staff requirement, but the vehicles could be ordered under a private finance initiative programme, the Ministry of Defence said.

The eight firms competing for the Future Command & Liason Vehicle contract came through a pre-feasibility questionnaire stage earlier this year. The army needs several hundred vehicles to enter service in the next decade, replacing some members of the Scorpion and FV432 families, as well as some Land Rover models.
