Light multi-role vehicle (LMV)
Developed to counter the evolving threat, the LMV vehicle range encompasses 4×4 personnel carrier and patrol vehicles, which combine exceptional mobility, agility and terrain accessibility with high levels of protection against both ballistic and mine attack.
Medium protected vehicle (MPV)
Available in 4×4 and 6×6 models, the MPV design is based on the Iveco Trakker military off-the-shelf truck chassis, combined with a ballistic steel protected crew cell. This cell incorporates the driver’s cab and cargo, which are communicating, offering more than 13m³ of volume in the standard 4×4 version, increasing to 16m³ for the ambulance / intensive treatment unit variant.
In response to evolving user requirements, Iveco has developed two families of wheeled armoured vehicles specifically designed to undertake amphibious operations: VBTP 6×6 and SUPERAV 8×8. Through a joint venture with Oto Melara (CIO), Iveco also offers the 8×8 Centauro family, capable of mounting weapon systems from 7.62mm to 120mm.
MOTS and Trakker range
Iveco Defence Vehicles also has access to the full Iveco range, from panel vans and light trucks through to transporters capable of moving loads in excess of 75t. Available as 4×2, 4×4, 6×4, 6×6, 8×4 and 8×8, these vehicles fulfil logistic roles for a wide range of defence forces from the rear echelon up to the forward areas.
Iveco Defence Vehicles has worked to develop a class leading protected cab, which can be fitted to Iveco’s heavy-duty 6×6 and 8×8 Trakker chassis. The result is a robust, highly mobile, which can operate even in high threat areas.
