Description: Warrior Capability Sustainment Programme (WCSP) delivers capability enhancements in fightability, survivability, growth potential and safe operation to ensure the Army remains able to meet Defence Final Outputs by means of: a) An improved turret with stabilised 40mm cannon which: allows firing on the move, is more effective against dismounts and armoured targets, improves fightability and enhances survivability; b) An enhanced electronic architecture to allow integration of turret systems, improve power generation and distribution; c) A common armour mounting system to enable current and future protection schemes to be easily mounted and tailored to the contemporary threat, enhancing survivability and a reduced logistic burden; and d) An Armoured Battlefield support vehicle (ABSV) - Support vehicles with survivability and mobility matched to the remainder of the WCSP fleet addressing obsolescence of Bulldogs and the limitations of UOR Platforms.
DCA (RAG): Green
DCA text: The Project has successfully achieved its first Anchor Milestone FV510/511 System Design Review and is on track to achieve its next Anchor Milestone FV510/511 Preliminary Design Review. Risks to the project are being managed to ensure it stays on track to deliver to time, cost and performance.
Start date: 2011-10-31
End date: 2022-03-01
Schedule text: Prime Contractor has delivered the Demonstration phase within the Approvals dates so far and this is expected to continue for the rest of the project.
Baseline: £49.01m
Forecast: £66.51m
Variance: 35.72%
Variance text: Variance in FY 2012/13 reflects a change to the accruals profile on the Prime contract for the Demonstration Phase. There has been an increase in the amount of work planned to take place in the early years of the contract, with a corresponding reduction in later years. The Demonstration Phase is Firm priced, and therefore there is no cost growth to the programme.
Whole Life Cost: £1,667.04m
WLCost text: An increase in Retail Price Index (RPIX) forecast is driving a positive variance against budget in the Manufacturing Phase due to a Variation On Price (VOP) clause in the Contract. This will have to be considered in the context of the overall Armoured Vehicle Programme or the Army's wider Equipment Plans.
