Yes. You are very observant. I forgot my password to the Brumby account and it is an impossible task trying to get a password reset with SDF. I have to set up a temp account so I can actually communicate with SDF. I am still waiting for a moderator to contact me to sort out the problem.

Hey Bro, I am very much alive. Had to go off grid due to some personal issues. Looks like you have been keeping yourself very busy.
Yep, you were having some vision issues, so quick SDF eye exam, "how many fingers am I holding Up?" anyway, glad things are better, feel free to pm anytime, you are in New Zealand right???

Ya the type with lots of wrinkles. I had one for many years but she passed away three years ago - sadly missed.

AFB, Can you please PM one of the moderator to PM me. I need to get my Brumby account password reset. I could not get it done through the normal process.

which will eventually replace service's fleet of outdated amphibious assault vehicles.

The office of Program Manager, Advanced Amphibious Assault is now trying to identify interested vendors capable of developing three mission-role variants, or MRVs -- ACV-Command, or ACV-C; ACV-Recovery/Maintenance, or ACV-R; and ACV-30mm Medium Caliber Cannon, or ACV-30, according to a Jan. 28 request for information posted on FedBizOpps.gov.

The Marine Corps is looking for contractors capable of designing, manufacturing and delivering up to 29 ACV-Cs, 39 ACV-Rs and 150 ACV-30s that maintain commonality with the existing ACV-Personnel, or ACV-P, vehicle to the maximum extent possible, the RFI states.

"The drivetrain, powertrain, water propulsion, hull underbody, armor system, suspension system, steering system, braking system, driver's station, and vehicle commander's station are all expected to be common with the ACV-P," the solicitation states.

Interested contractors have until Feb. 8 to respond.

"Vendors possessing the requisite skills, resources, and capabilities necessary to perform the stated requirements are invited to respond to this RFI via a submission of an executive summary ... describing product summary, complete technical characteristics, and training and spare parts support capability," the RFI states.

The Marine Corps is looking for contractors with experience in the design and production of ground tactical vehicle systems, including production operations, engineering change proposals and production quality management, it adds.

The eight-wheeled ACV 1.1 has improved survivability and under-body blast protection that's comparable to the Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle, Marine officials said.

BAE will eventually build an upgraded ACV 1.2 that the Corps hopes to field to as a replacement for its fleet of 870 amphibious assault vehicles.

I Marine Expeditionary Force is scheduled to be the first to receive the new ACV when fielding starts in the fourth quarter of 2020. Full operational capability is scheduled for 2023, Marine officials said.
