Iveco Defence Vehicles presents the new Special Forces LMV at defence exhibition IDET 2011.
IVECO Defence Vehicles presents for the first time at the International Exhibition of Defence and Technologies IDET 2011 in Czech Republic, its new LMV SF Special Forces vehicles based on the Iveco Light Multirole Vehicle (LMV). The eleventh annual International Exhibition of Defence and Security Technologies IDET will be held in Brno from 10 to 13 May, 2011.
Iveco Defence Vehicles is building on the remarkable commercial and operational success of its Light Multirole Vehicle (LMV) to develop a version dedicated to Special Forces operations. Currently deployed in Afghanistan by seven different nations, the LMV is well regarded by its users, and its high levels of protection and mobility have already saved numerous lives.
The decision to develop a Special Forces variant was supported by a number of SF units, enabling their specific operational requirements to be taken into consideration form the design phase. The result is a robust, mobile adaptable platform which is well placed to meet the demands of SF missions.
The new model features the same well-proven drive train and running gear of the standard version, although its armoured cab has been stripped down to a minimum, providing optimum situational awareness and enabling rapid dismount.
