Vector Strategy Releases New US Military Ground Vehicle and Armor Forecast

SOUTHERN PINES, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vector Strategy has published a new release of their US Military Ground Vehicle and Armor Procurement Forecast. The subtitle of this new release is "Forecast 2020: a Battle Between Modernization and The US Federal Deficit".

“Forecast 2020: a Battle Between Modernization and The US Federal Deficit”

According to Marcia Price, President of Vector Strategy, "We developed two scenarios within our new forecast. Our first scenario funds all US Army and USMC vehicle programs according to future acquisition strategies communicated today by those services. That forecast requires approximately $1 billion more annually in FY13 to FY20 than has been spent on military ground vehicles in the base budget over the last six years. That future funding level is not likely realistic within the fiscal environment this nation faces. So we created a second scenario that matched future funding levels to the current amount of base budget funding military ground vehicles have been receiving. It is interesting, but not surprising, to see which vehicle programs we eliminated to make that funding level work.”

Other conclusions from the report include:

  • Vehicle procurement declines 38% from FY11 to FY12 and another 33% from FY12 to FY13.
  • FY13 represents the lowest year of US military ground vehicle procurement from FY05 to FY20.
  • FY13 is a particularly difficult year because it represents a transition between procurement of current force platforms with strong OCO requests and future year modernization plans that will depend on base budgets for their funding.
  • Higher levels of vehicle and armor procurement in FY14 to FY16 are very dependent on the US Army's ability to advance combat vehicle modernization programs through Milestones A and B into Milestone C and low rate initial production. This likely represents a larger risk to the industrial base than lack of funding.

Vector Strategy's May 2011 release provides a complete forecast of total spending on US military ground vehicles and a separate forecast of armor procurement for those vehicles. The new forecast was released on May 10, 2011 and is available for immediate purchase and electronic delivery.
