R.I.P.: Close Combat Vehicle

Joint statement on the decision not to proceed with the procurement process for the Close Combat Vehicle
The Close Combat Vehicle (CCV) programme was meant for the Canadian Army to procure/develop a heavy armoured personnel carrier (APC) / infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) to accompany their Leopard 2 main-battle tanks.

It is now dead.

The German equivalent, the Puma IFV, also seems to be undergoing teething problems... [in German]
