The Tactical Armored Patrol vehicle (TAPV) program of the Canadian Army is picking steam as the deadline for proposals nears. Force protection announced yesterday its offer submission for the program. The company is offering the ‘Timberwolf’, a 6x6 variant of the battle proven Cougar. A contract award to the final selected bidder for the TAPV requirement is currently expected by the second quarter of 2012.
After teaming with CAE as its leading local partner, Force Protection Industries is strengthening the industry team adding Lockheed Martin Canada as the provider of integrated C4ISR systems for the program, and Elbit Systems, to provide the vehicle's main weapon system - an Israeli-designed, Canadian manufactured Dual Remote Weapon Station (DRWS).
