The US army intends to develop prototypes of new light armored vehicles under the designation "Mobile protected firepower" (SAM), writes the National Interest.

The latest armored vehicles need to change the principles of a land war and surpass the Russian counterparts, reports the "new York times".

"Mobility increases your lethality and makes you less vulnerable because you can attack the enemy before he will undermine your ability to move", – said the Deputy chief of staff G-9 Command combat training Ricky Smith.

He did not specify what weight will have a new car, but noticed that the developers want to achieve an optimal balance between "knockdown, mobility, and survivability". Senior army leadership the United States argues that SAM will be stronger and better than its Russian analogue – 2С25 airborne self-propelled gun "Sprut-SD", which weighs about 20 tons and has a 125-mm smoothbore gun.

The article "" said that the American tanks "Abrams" despite their weapons and armor, struggling to cope with the support of the infantry because of its weight and limited mobility.

According to Smith, that military forces need to be easily deployed and rapidly moving fire support, it was decided to develop SOM.

The military leadership has said they want to develop a mobile weapons platform, capable of rapid deployment. It is argued that SOM are generated based on two such armored vehicles could be placed on a military transport plane With-17.

According to the official representatives of the us armed forces by 2019, the army must make two transactions on design and manufacturing MSOM as a first step before prototyping from various vendors. The creation of an initial prototype is expected within 14 months from the date of conclusion of the contract, reads the statement of the army.

The contract to develop SOM strive to BAE Systems and General Dynamics Land Systems.

The GlobalSecurity report said that the main weapon of armored vehicles "must be balanced for shooting on the move, and the guidance system and fire control should be equipped for all weather conditions including night."

The strategy of the US army modernization of military vehicles underlines the need to adapt the technology of large-caliber guns for light vehicles. The strategy addresses the lightweight 120 mm XM360 gun developed for the now closed program "future Combat system". Now the weapon is considered to BMNP or future tanks, but its technology may be suitable for SOM, where you need a lot of firepower with minimum weight, according to the article.

Reference: In late 2015, the US army published the "Strategy for modernization of combat vehicles," the emphasis which was placed on the "missing links" in the Arsenal of American ground forces. In 2016, the army told the American enterprises OPK of the wishes to create a new ground combat vehicle – SOM.
