Description
The Iveco LMV (Light Multirole Vehicle) is a 4x4 tactical vehicle developed by Iveco, and in service with several countries. The Light Multipurpose Vehicle (LMV) was originally developed by the IVECO Defence Vehicles as a private venture with the first of 10 prototypes being completed in 2001. Within IVECO the LMV has the company designation of the M 65E19 WM 4 × 4.To reduce overall life-cycle costs, proven off-the-shelf subsystems were used in the design of the LMV wherever possible, for example engine and transmission.According to IVECO, the LMV has been designed to meet the stringent demands of military operations at the same time as providing a high level of ride and crew comfort. Late in 2003, the Italian Army placed a contract for an initial batch of 60 LMVs, of which two were used for development and trials work with the remaining 58 going to units for user trials. These were supplied in armoured and non-armoured configurations Late in 2004 an order was placed for a further 1,150 vehicles for delivery over a five-year period with all of these vehicles being in an armoured configuration.In Italian Army service the vehicle is called the VTLM (Veicolo Tattico Leggero Multiruolo). Within the Italian Army it is also referred to as the Lynx.The UK has ordered 401 of these vehicles to meet its requirement for a Command and Liaison Vehicle. The LMV is in service with Italy, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom. The LMV is called VTLM Lince by the Italian military and Panther CLV in the United Kingdom. The LMV is currently in use in Afghanistan.

Armament
The Iveco LMV can be fitted with a remote controlled weapon station armed with weapons up to 12,7 mm in caliber. Larger weapons systems such as air-defense missiles, shelter, box-type or even pick-up style bodies can be mounted behind a smaller two-seat cab.
Design and protection
The LMV Iveco can be fitted with modular armour, who gives a protection against any type of mine and ballistic threats, favoring crew protection versus vehicle integrity. The LMV is designed to provide the crew with the maximum possible safety against mines. The ground clearance has been maximized, moving away the origin of the explosion. No heavy mechanical element has been installed under the crew cabin and the transfer case has been moved into the rear part of the vehicle. The high payload of the LMV can be exploited for installed add-on armour kits designed since the first design phase. The basic kits provides ballistic protection against light weapons fire, while the heavier kit can protect the crew from ambushes, including mines threat.
Propulsion
The LMV utilizes a conventional C-section chassis but with longitudinal reinforcements and tubular cross-members to give the required torsional rigidity. At present two wheelbase lengths are available, the standard 3.2 m and the extended 3.5 m, these giving overall lengths of 4.704 and 5.504 m respectively. The LMV Iveco is motorized with a 140 KW(HP) power engine coupled to an automatic or a mechanical gearbox with with 6 forward gears and 1 reverse.
Accessories
The cab is fitted with two front adjustable and suspended seats, plus three suspended seats at the rear. A winch is mounted to the front of the vehicle. The LMV vehicle has been designed with a compact profile that allows one vehicle to be carried inside a CH-47 helicopter, while a Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules transport aircraft can carry two systems internally.
