Raytheon and Rheinmetall Defence are partnering with Pratt & Miller Defence for the U.S. Army's Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle competition. The Detroit-based company will provide engineering analysis to help ensure the KF41 Lynx Infantry Fighting Vehicle meets or exceeds the Army's survivability requirements for the program.

Raytheon and Rheinmetall will offer an American-made KF41 Lynx vehicle to answer the U.S. Army’s call for a Next-Generation Combat Vehicle. "Pratt & Miller brings extraordinary engineering experience and expertise to the team to make sure Lynx can withstand the battlefield's harsh conditions," said Brad Barnard, Raytheon OMFV director. 

Equipped with modern weapons, an active protection system and a new generation of thermal optics, Lynx is scheduled to replace Bradley armoured combat vehicles in 2026.
