The Army on 17 July released a Draft RFP for the Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle (OMFV) —

The OMFV will serve as the Army’s Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) tasked to maneuver through the enemy’s disruption zone as part of a joint combined arms team for the purpose of creating an advantageous position, relative to the enemy, to deliver a decisive strike while manned or remote operated. In the close fight, the OMFV enables the ability of squads to maneuver by detecting and destroying targets at a range beyond the enemy’s capability.

The Army is planning a five (5) phased acquisitition approach to design, prototype, test, and produce the OMFV.
