I find it rather odd that Oshkosh/ST Engineering is offering the armored Bronco 3 while BAE is offering the unarmored Beowulf
ST Engineering does sell an unarmored version — but that will not be offered as a prototype for CATV testing.

The Oshkosh CATV (which is yet to be built), is derived or based on (but NOT the same as Bronco 3); which leads me to suspect they will try to shed some weight but retain the same external mold-lines.

But I acknowledge that there will be a weight difference between the offerings, which may be a factor. Oshkosh Defense and ST Engineering will deliver two prototypes – one General Purpose and one Cargo vehicle for testing and Soldier evaluation in Q3FY21. The prototypes will be evaluated on payload, mobility, crush resistance, swimming, and transportability.

Up-armouring will be on customer demand.

Does this mean that the Oshkosh CATV has been rejected?
I noted the article was provided by BAE, hence it is more of a marketing piece, announcing their involvement in this project. This project requires the selected companies to deliver two prototypes - one General Purpose and one Cargo vehicle for testing and soldier evaluation - by the end of this year, according to a press release from Oshkosh. Hence we can safely say that the test has not been conducted and not likely there is any announcement of winner for this project.
