Armament
The ASV's M1117 Guardian firepower consists of a one-person, non-stabilized, turreted primary weapons station with a mounted 40mm automatic grenade launcher (MK19 MOD 3) and .50-caliber machine gun (M2/M48). The turret traverses 360° and allows for elevation of 45°. The day/night target acquisition and fire control system allows the gunner to engage targets at the maximum effective ranges of both weapon systems. The vehicle also includes a M249 squad automatic weapon mount and M257 multi-salvo smoke grenade system.
Design and protection
The ASV M1117 Guardian provides greater ballistic protection than any other wheeled vehicle of its size in the world. The external modular expandable armor system of ceramic composite material provides ballistic protection for the crew, ammunition, fuel tanks, and storage areas against 12.7mm armor-piercing ammunition. The ASV provides overhead protection against 60mm at 10 feet (3 meters) and 155mm ammunition at 50 feet (15 meters). It provides under body protection against antipersonnel and antitank mines up to 12 pounds (5.4 kg) TNT or equivalent explosive. This superior ballistic protection also includes a spall liner on the interior surfaces of the vehicle. The ASV M1117 can be also fitted with an add-on armor.
Mobility
The ASV M1117 Guardian uses a 4x4 chassis. The vehicle is motorised with a Cummins 6CTA8.3, 260 hp/828 lb-ft engine, coupled to a transmission Allison MD3560 with 6 forward and 1 reverse speed. To maximize crew effectiveness, the ASV provides superior ride quality on highways and off-road terrain. The ASV travels at highway speeds over 97 km/h (60 mph) while offering excellent handling, ride quality and mobility, based upon independent suspension with unmatched range of well over 440 miles on a basic load of fuel. Its off-road performance includes the capability to ford water depths of five feet, climb gradients of 60 percent, and overcome vertical obstacles two feet high.
Accessories
The ASV is transportable (roll-on/roll-off) by C-130 and larger aircraft, rail, highway and marine transport modes. The ASV includes an organic winch capable of producing a minimum rated pull capacity of 15,000 lbs. (6,795 kg) to permit self-recovery and/or recovery of other systems as required.
