Heavy Tactical Vehicles
Logistics Vehicle System Replacement (LVSR)
The LVSR is a technologically advanced, versatile platform capable of performing multiple logistics mission profiles. Critical to mission success, the LVSR enables Marines to move equipment and supplies to wherever the mission calls. All variants are capable of supporting machine gun turrets providing security, and provide heavy equipment logistic support up to 30 tons.
Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected (MRAP) Fleet
MRAPs are heavily-armored vehicles that provide protected mobility from improvised explosive devices (IEDs), small arms fire, and other explosive threats. The MRAP family of vehicles is comprised of three variants: the M-ATV, the Cougar, and the Buffalo.
Buffalo: The Buffalo provides Marines with route clearance capabilities and protection against anti-personnel and anti-tank mines. Equipped with a digging claw and video camera, the Buffalo's extendable arm finds and uncovers concealed IEDs with precision and standoff blast protection. It accommodates six Marines and associated countermine mission equipment.
Cougar: The Cougar reduces Marine casualties and increases survivability from mine explosions, IEDs and medium caliber weapons. The Cougar's enhanced suspension supports small units in combat operations--both urban and confined, reconnaissance missions, and command and control operations.
P-19R Firefighting Truck
The P-19R is the principal firefighting and crash response vehicle for the Marine Corps. The P-19R is equipped with fire suppression compounds, extinguishing agents, handheld extinguishers and specialized rescue tools. Marine Corps firefighters use the P-19R to extinguish aircraft fires, protect rescue personnel, cool explosive ordnance, extract aircrew and other fire-executing missions.
AMK970 5000-Gallon Semitrailer Refueler: The MK970 is a military-adapted commercial semi-trailer fuel tanker with a capacity of 5,000 gallons, plus three-percent capacity for expansion of the fuel. The tankers are capable of aviation refueling / defueling and ground vehicle refueling. The MK970 is used to transport fuel over primary, secondary unimproved roads and cross-country, and to provide filtered aviation and automotive fuel dispensing capability.
M870AE1 50-Ton Semitrailer and M870A2-S 40-Ton Semitrailer: The M870AE1 and M870A2-S Medium Heavy Equipment Transporters are capable of line-haul transport of equipment weighing up to 50 and 40 tons, respectively, on improved road surfaces.
M1076 and M1077 Flatrack Palletized Load System: Both the PLS-T M1076 and M1077 flatracks carry a flatrack payload of up to 33,000 lbs. The flatrack is loaded and unloaded using the truck Load Handling System (LHS). The PLS-T is transported by the LVSR cargo variant.
Flatrack Refueling Capability (FRC): The FRC is a self-contained refueling system consisting of a 2500-gallon tank, an on-board pump, a filter assembly, required hoses and equipment. The FRC will be transported by the LVSR cargo variant.
