OVERVIEW



For the purpose of the GFP ranking, the 'Armored Fighting Vehicle' (AFV) is represented by Armored Personnel Carriers (APCs), Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFVs), and - more recently, Mine-Resistant, Ambush-Protected (MRAP) types. Examples include the American 'Bradley' Infantry Fighting Vehicle and the Russian MT-LB series. While typically tracked, AFVs can also showcase road wheels along multiple axles as in the American 'Stryker' family line. Systems on order (heading into the next year) are not taken into account. Light utility vehicles (such as the ubiquitous HUMVEE, even if armed/up-armored) and military trucks/engineering/logistical vehicles are not taken into account.

The data presented below is through 2019.
