Description: The Terrier CEV is an air-transportable armored combat engineer vehicle being developed by BAe Systems, RO Defence, for the British Army's Royal Engineers with an estimated requirement for up to 65 units. The Terrier development and demonstration contract awarded to BAE Systems was valued at £300 million. The vehicle will feature reduced logistics support needs while providing a wide range of utilities. It will support both current legacy forces and the Future Rapid Effects System (FRES) forces structures. FRES is the British counterpart to US Future Combat Systems (FCS). The C-17 and the A400M are the two airborne platforms planned by the British Armed Forces to airlift the Terrier armored vehicle.
The Terrier CEV will be capable of clearing and mark routes, digging defensive positions and preparing or clearing obstacles. The fully-equipped weight requirement is less than 31.5 tons and crew of two-man or remote operation mode in hazardous environments. A 7.62mm machine gun will be provided for self-defense purposes. The first Terrier prototype was unveiled by the British Minister for Defence Procurement, Lord Drayson, on 27 May 2005 at BAE Systems' site in Leicester, Great Britain. Design activities will be carried out at Leicester site and production in Newcastle and Barrow. In service date was anticipated by mid-2008.
In January 2006, BAE Systems was awarded a £10 million contract to provide Terrier training systems to the UK MoD. The contract included four crew training simulators, a remote control trainer and a classroom set of software suites for diagnostic emulator workstations. Deliveries were planned for February 2008.
