The April 2012 release of Vector Strategy's US Military Ground Vehicle and Armor Procurement Forecast is ready for immediate purchase and electronic delivery!
This forecast release presents vehicle and armor procurement for 3 scenario's:
- Scenario A represents the FY13 budget and its Future Year Defense Plan (FYDP) as requested by the US Army and the USMC in February 2012.
- Scenario B represents the FY13 Budget FYDP with reasonable upsides added back into the forecast to keep vehicle production lines warm, specifically in FY13 to FY16.
- Scenario C addresses the consequences of additional DoD funding cuts beyond those already outlined in the DoD’s FY13 outlook of future funding; such as those that may be mandated in an altered Budget Control Act or other budget legislation that further addresses the national debt crisis.
US Military Ground Vehicle and Armor Procurement Forecast is the most thorough and accurate projection of US military ground vehicle and armor procurement publicly available.
This forecast reports the value of DoD armor procurement for military ground vehicles in millions of dollars and provides vehicle and / or kit counts. It includes a procurement forecast for all tracked and wheeled US military ground vehicle armor programs.

Conclusions from Vector's April 2012 US Military Ground Vehicle and Armor Procurement Forecast:
- The DOD has cut their vehicle procurement outlook for FY14 to FY20 by an average of $2.2 billion annually when one compares what they were outlining last year to what they are indicating in their FY13 budget request and in their current program modernization plans.
- US military ground vehicle procurement in FY13 contracts 39% from FY12 levels.
- FY14 represents the lowest year of US military ground vehicle procurement over the entire forecast horizon.
- After a procurement decline of 39% in FY13, the market will experience another decline of 44% in FY14.
- The best hypothesis for FY13 to FY20 vehicle procurement funding is a blend of Scenario B and Scenario C. Congress provides funding to keep production lines warm in FY13 to FY16 (Scenario B). Then, in FY17 to FY20, additional budget cuts kick in to address the national debt crisis. (Scenario C).
- The outcome of NIE 12.2 will be especially critical to both the AMPV and the GCV programs.
- US Army leadership has conservatively indicated that future TWV Approved Acquisition Objectives (AAO's) could fall 30% from TWV FY12 AAO's.
- Although most national news services are devoted to coverage of the 2012 Presidential race and election, the 2012 US Senate elections are likely more influential on how the US will address the national deficit crisis in the future.

Vector Strategy analyzes DoD, Army, Navy, USMC, and Air Force fiscal year regular and supplemental budget requests, as well as congressional actions and budget releases throughout the year.
We also gather military program office communication regarding specific armor programs during conferences, in press releases and industry publications, as well as track congressional testimony regarding vehicle and armor programs.
We monitor contract awards, access contract documents, and adjust our procurement forecast based on actual contract quantities and contract costs.
Finally, we review vehicle and armor build rates of manufacturers to determine current production volumes to validate our estimate of current market size and estimate backlog and lead times.
