Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division (NSWC PCD) Electrical Engineer Tim Adams displays a newly-developed rifle rack with: a reduced footprint; increased modularity; a potential to stow a larger variety of weapons; improved weapon accessibility; and an increase in stowage stability. Although the new rack was re-designed as an upgrade for the Buffalo Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle, the rack's newly improved capabilities make it a potential upgrade for a variety of similar vehicles. Weighing over 50,000 pounds, the Buffalo is the largest of the U.S. MRAP vehicles. It is used by Explosive Ordnance Disposal and Combat Engineers as a key capability for Route Clearance Patrols. - Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division (NSWC PCD) Electrical Engineer Tim Adams displays a newly-developed rifle rack with: a reduced footprint; increased modularity; a potential to stow a larger variety of weapons; improved weapon accessibility; and an increase in stowage stability.
