Description
The Common Tactical Wheeled Vehicle has its roots in an 8x8 armored vehicle developed by Mitsubishi called the MAV.
Six derivatives of the Type 16 Maneuver Combat Vehicle (16MCV), built on the MAV, were planned. These were called the Common Tactical Armored Vehicle, and included the Infantry Combat Vehicle (ICV), Reconnaissance Combat Vehicle (RCV), Maneuver Morter Combat Veheicle (MMCV), Mobile Armored Vehicle (MPV), Medevac (MEV), and Mobile Combat Command Vehicle (CV), all but the ICV, RCV and MMCV were discontinued (The MPV,MEV,CV was incorporated into the next armored car project and fought the Patria AMV. And the Patria AMV was adopted.)(MEV and CV were not manufactured)

In the FY2024 budget request, 24 ICVs and 8 MMCVs will be acquired.
