Design and protection
The all-welded monocoque (no frame rail) hull of RG-33L Plus is manufactured from several high-strength alloy steels to defeat the given threat. The hull is supported by beam axles both front and rear. The MRAP RG33L Plus vehicles are fitted to be an Infantry Tactical Maneuver Vehicle upon delivery. The 6x6 will also accommodate the mission equipment package for an Ambulance Vehicle. There is front and rear seating for 8 squad members and driver’s/commander’s seats in front. The seating arrangement in the MRAP RG33L Plus is front and rear for the squad with driver’s and commander’s seats in the front cab. The protection of the RG33L Plus is increased with the use of add-on armour plates fitted to each side of the vehicle. Each side of the vehicle is fitted with 4 bulletproof windows. The MRAP RG33L Plus contains survivability enhancements over previous MRAP variants that improve small arms fire, mine blast, IED and EFP protection. The MRAP RG33L Plus contains appliqué armor mounted to the upper V and vertical sides, and adjustable Effector Packs mounted to the side of the vehicle. In addition, the MRAP RG33L Plus uses thicker ballistic windows and is raised 3.9 inches to improve blast resistance.
Mobility
The RG33L Plus is motorized with a Cummins ISLE 8.9 Litre 450 diesel engine coupled to an Allison 3200SP six-speed automatic transmission. A Cushman 315M-1 transfer gearbox is in line with the transmission and provides drives for the front and rear axles. The RG33L Plus is equipped with three fuel tanks. The Day Tank is located in the engine compartment. The remaining two tanks are located externally, on the V section of the crew capsule, behind the driver’s door (left side) and behind the passenger door (right side).
Accessories
The MRAP RG33L Plus is equipped with multiple external stowage boxes as well as external access to the batteries (each side). The rear fuel tanks can be accessed externally, but only fueled from left tank. A roof ladder is located next to the Driver’s door and there are two rear stowage boxes as well. There are two external mounts for Water and Fuel Cans. The MRAP RG33L Plus is fitted with Hutchinson VF-0223-C runflats, suitable for use with 16.00 R20 tires. The RG33L Plus is equipped with air conditioning which consists of two engine-driven and mounted Sanden 4051/4052 compressors rated at 215 cc with R-134a refrigerant. These compressors feed dual condensers mounted on each front fender of the chassis. The vehicle is also equipped with an A20 Personnel Heater manufactured by Hunter Mfg Co and an automatic fire suppression system. The vehicle is equipped with side and rear door assist mechanisms to aid the soldier in opening and closing the door. This reduces ingress and egress times and allows the user to open and close the door when the vehicle is on sloped terrain. The side door assist system is used to open and close the driver and commander doors on the vehicles. All the RG33L Plus of U.S. Army are now equipped with Counter-IED jammer system.
