First fielded by the United States Marine Corps in the early 1980s, the LAV II baseline vehicle was 12,374 kg with a maximum swimming speed of approximately 10 km/h, and a 25mm turret. A crew of three and a troop complement of six could be carried by the baseline LAV.
Since then, a wide range of LAV II vehicle variants have been produced including Anti-Tank, Personnel Carrier, Recovery, Command & Control, and Reconnaissance and Ambulance. For domestic and international customers whose mission profiles do not require swim capability, non-amphibious LAV II vehicles are also available.
Proven in reconnaissance roles, the agile LAV II is an excellent choice for users seeking high mobility, transportability, and amphibious performance.
