I've read that BAE's proposed M113 replacement, the AMPV, is essentially an uparmored Bradley chasis without a turret. Last I heard, it was the submission chosen by the U.S. Army. If that is indeed the case, the Bradley will live on for a long time to come.

Caveat: for NATO.

The Soviets developed canon-launched ATGMs to out-range NATO tank guns.
