DEFENCE IMPROVES ITS POWER

LMV2 - Light Multirole Vehicle 4x4

The LMV, first produced in 2006, has been the subject of continuous development and innovation. The latest evolution of the LMV, the LMV2, offers better performance with increased payload, improved reliability and enhanced crew comfort. The new version has a G.V.W. of 8.1t and is powered by the FPT F1C engine coupled to a brand new ZF automatic 8-speed transmission. The upgraded driveline has three differential locks, can handle more power and has optional ADM (Automatic Drivetrain Management) and ESP (Electronic Stability Program), enhancing off-road handling and driving safety. Further mobility enhancements have been achieved thanks to a specially designed new suspension unit set, combined with new tyres, enhancing the vehicle’s all-terrain capacity. Crew protection has been given special priority, reflecting the importance of achieving mission success with minimum risk to personnel. The crew cell is decoupled from all other components, minimising the transmission of blast energy from the chassis through a range of technical solutions that include an underbelly blast shield, multi-layered floor structure, suspended and shock-dampened seats, supporting structures and the use of composite materials. The “dual-role” hard-top, constructed on a ballistic steel monocoque framework with lightweight aluminium/steel roll-bar, allows the vehicle to be equipped with either a manual turret or Remote Weapon Station (RWS), both of which can be quickly and easily fitted and removed in the field, ensuring greater deployment flexibility. The LMV2 is designed to accommodate extensive mission systems such as BMS, intercom, ECM (Electronic Counter Measures) and radio thanks also to its outstanding Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) profile that meets the exceptionally demanding DEF-STAN and MIL-STD requirements. Sub-system integration has also been greatly eased by adopting a new digitised electronic architecture and improved power supply. The shape and dimensions of the LMV2 give the vehicle a reduced cross-spectrum signature (thermal, acoustic, visual and radar) and significant transportability and strategic mobility by land, air (two LMV2 fitting onto a C130J) and helicopter. Last but not least, the maintenance demand has been reduced by improving the type and location of certain subsystems and by tailoring the service regime. An optional, digitised dashboard provides on-demand maintenance based data on prognostics, allowing users to accurately review and schedule maintenance tasks rather than predicting and scheduling preventive maintenance. At present, the LMV is available with different protection levels and cabins (short and long type) to meet a wide range of different mission roles. Its modular design allows for diverse mission variants, from Patrolling to Command & Control, Reconnaissance, Medevac, Logistic Carrier, Artillery, CBRN, Electronic Warfare, Special Operation Forces, etc…
