XM1206 Infantry Combat/Carrier Vehicle (ICV)

The Infantry Carrier Vehicle (ICV) consists of four platform versions: a Company Commander; a Platoon Leader; a Rifle Squad; and a Weapons Squad. All four platform versions appear to be identical from the exterior to prevent targeting of a specific Infantry Carrier Vehicle (ICV) variant type (e.g., Platoon Leader). The Infantry Platoon includes an Infantry Carrier Vehicle (ICV) Platoon Leader variant; three Infantry Carrier Vehicle (ICV) Rifle Squad variants; and an Infantry Carrier Vehicle (ICV) Weapons Squad variant. The Infantry Carrier Vehicle (ICV) Rifle Squad variant and Infantry Carrier Vehicle (ICV) Weapons Squad variant each deliver 9-person infantry squads to a location from which they will conduct a close assault.

The Infantry Carrier Vehicle (ICV) will effectively employ weapon systems and rapidly maneuver during blackout, day and night operations, inclement weather, and limited visibility periods. The Infantry Carrier Vehicle (ICV) will deliver the dismounted force to the close battle and support the squad by providing self-defense and supporting fires. The Infantry Carrier Vehicle (ICV) carries the majority of equipment freeing the individual Soldier to focus on mission. The squad will have access to Army and Joint fire delivery systems from external sources to provide extended range, networked responsive precision or volume fires on demand in support of tactical maneuvers. The Infantry Carrier Vehicle (ICV) can move, shoot, communicate, detect threats, and protect crew and critical components under most land-surface environments. Data transfer with other components of the Unit of Action (UA) permits constant update of the common operational picture and rapid identification of targets.
