Speaking at the International Armoured Vehicles conference in London on 24 January, the director of land equipment at the UK's Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) organisation revealed that the British Army sent a letter of request to US to meet the army’s Multi-Role Vehicle-Protected (MRV-P) Group 1 requirement.
