The Maneuver Combat Vehicle (機動戦闘車 kidou-sentou-sha?) is a wheeled tank destroyer of the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The maneuver combat vehicle, which will equip combat units, will be useful for attacks to armored fighting vehicles and personnel using a large caliber gun after rapid deployment in response to various contingencies.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

The Technical Research & Development Institute of Japan's Ministry of Defense had made several prototype vehicles since 2008. They unveiled their fourth Mobile Combat Vehicle (MCV) prototype on 9 October 2013. Testing is scheduled to begin in 2014 or 2015, and be deployed by the JGSDF in 2016.[2][3]
