The new era for land operations

SUPERAV Land - Land Armoured Vehicle 8X8

After the joint success with BAE Systems of the original SUPERAV 8×8 Amphibious Vehicle in the US Marine Corps ACV program, Iveco Defence Vehicles has added a land-oriented version to its portfolio, designed for integration with an unmanned turret and an extensive mission payload. Being so well tried and trusted, Iveco Defence Vehicles decided to exploit the capability of the SUPERAV amphibious 8×8 platform in the brand new SUPERAV Land. The SUPERAV Land has about 85% in common with the amphibious vehicle, with virtually identical engine and drivetrain components, but is slightly smaller (450mm in length and 190mm in height) to improve terrestrial mobility and reduce the vehicle profile, and considering the fact that terrestrial mission squads are usually made up of eight troops. Lowering the internal volume, has saved a considerable amount of weight, equivalent to the average weight of a medium calibre unmanned turret. Naturally, the SUPERAV Land has no amphibious subsystems like propellers, propeller shafts, splashboards and bilge pumps, and with transport capability reduced from 13 to 8 troops, all the saved weight has been invested in additional ballistic protection.

As previously mentioned, the SUPERAV Land has the same engine as the original AV, based on an Iveco Cursor 16 turbocharged intercooler diesel producing 700hp and 3000Nm torque, coupled to an Allison 4800 SP gearbox with seven forward and two reverse gears. The independent hydro-pneumatic McPherson independent suspension ensures maximum off-road mobility, and the vehicle is also fitted with a disengageable transverse differential lock for the front axle. The SUPERAV Land has first and second axle steering as standard, with an optional fourth low speed counter-steering axle to reduce the turning circle even further. The SUPERAV runs on 16.00 R20 tyres with run-flat VFI system and central inflation system to optimise performance on soft ground. The vehicle is equipped with a digital vetronic system providing over 900Ah electrical power, as well as easy third-party subsystem integration, and a built-in diagnostics system for improved maintainability.
