Manufacturers were given 49 days to submit their first prototype and 75 days for completion of 70 test vehicles. The Army's Ordnance Technical Committee specifications were equally stringent: the vehicle would be four-wheel drive, have a crew of three on a wheelbase of no more than 75 in, later upped to 80 in, and track no more than 47 in, feature a fold-down windshield, carry a 660 lb payload, and be powered by an engine capable of 85 lb⋅ft (115 N⋅m) of torque.

Two prototypes designated XM765 were being tested, derived from the XM701 (MICV-65 program). The latter was already aimed at replacing the M113 (Mechanised Infantry Combat Vehicle, 1965). The XM701 already had a sloped rear deck with firing ports for the infantry. Although evaluated, the XM765 was nevertheless rejected in favour of the M2 Bradley, but FMC decided to market it anyway for export as a cheap alternative to the Bradley and possible upgrade for its production, resulting in the PI M113A1 in 1970 and after revisions in 1970, came out with the AIFV (armoured infantry fighting vehicle). Four evaluation vehicles were built and eventually were chosen by the Netherlands, placing an order for 880 vehicles in 1975, which was re-designated YP
