Class: Reconnaissance Vehicle (Prototype)
Developed: 1972-1974
Service: N/A
Vehicles Built: 1

After the 1966 appearance of the BMP-1, the U.S. Army found itself in need of an IFV. The M113 would no longer cut it – it was still in production at that point, but it wasn't capable of threatening modern Soviet vehicles. As one of the earlier attempts, the Americans decided to revisit the Mechanized Infantry Combat Vehicle program from the early 1960s in 1968.

This resulted in several projects starting from 1969, including the XM765 AIFV (basically a slightly up-armored M113 with a 20mm cannon) and the XM723 MICV (bigger, sturdier and faster than the XM765, but with underdeveloped armament). In the early 1970s, military project funding was in short supply due to budget cuts, which is why the overseers of the MICV program were not happy to find out in October 1971 that some of their funds were being diverted to a U.S. Army (specifically Armored Cavalry) program called Armored Reconnaissance Scout Vehicle. The idea behind it was to replace the troubled Sheridan and the M114 (which was basically just a modified M113, completely unsuitable for its intended scout roles).

The replacement had to be fast, stealthy and, ideally, air-droppable. Lockheed and FMC were asked to provide their proposals. FMC went for a tracked vehicle while Lockheed proposed a 6x6 wheeled vehicle designated XM800W. The initial contracts for four prototypes were closed in May 1972, but the number was later reduced to one per producer. FMC's prototype for the tracked category, designated XM800T, was ready in May 1973 and the official government testing began in November 1973. The XM800T was armed with a stabilized 20mm Hispano-Suiza HS.820 autocannon, capable of dealing with the opponents it was expected to come up against, such as the BMP-1.

The trials were quite successful and the design was promising, beating Lockheed in nearly every aspect of the tests. However, with the Vietnam War still raging, money was short. The decision to cancel the project eventually came from very high up the command chain, officially due to the lack of funding, although it is said that Lockheed, the losing party, also played a role in it as its lobbyists carried a lot of weight in Washington DC. The ARSV program was cancelled in November 1974 and the single XM800T prototype was mothballed.

Vehicle Traits[ | ]

  • Harder to Spot: When moving slowly, this vehicle does not lose any camouflage and can effectively creep around.
  • Designate Target: This vehicle has the ability to designate targets that are within its line of sight. Designated targets are marked to other players and take increased damage.
  • Recon Package: This vehicle's set of advanced optics provides an improved vision range when stationary.
  • Unguided Rockets: This vehicle can fire rockets that, unlike ATGMs, cannot be guided once in flight.
  • Amphibious: This vehicle is more resistant to taking on water, allowing it to traverse wider rivers or lakes.
  • Smoke Generators: This vehicle generates smoke all around it and lays down smoke cover by driving forward.
