TARDEC conducts MDFV exercise at Ft. Bragg
By Ms. Kimberly Bratic (TARDEC)March 21, 2016
A team from the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center is at Fort Bragg, N.C., conducting a modular direct fire vehicle simulated exercise with Soldiers of 3rd Squadron, 73 Cavalry, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division. The MDFV is a non-traditional concept platform in support of TARDEC's mobile protected fire effort. Three direct fire systems will be tested in order to gather data on utilization of each capability. Three systems to be evaluated are: the Wingman, an unarmed HMMWV; the Cridder, a two-ton wheeled unmanned platform; and the Scorpion, a four-ton, unmanned, tracked platform. Each system provides a unique lethality package. Feedback from this exercise will provide user feedback that will inform future TARDEC efforts for MPF and other development efforts.
