First fielded by the United States Marine Corps, the baseline LAV II variant was 12,374 kg, with a maximum swimming speed of approximately 10 km/h and featured a 25mm turret. A crew of three and a troop complement of six could be carried by the baseline LAV II.
Since then, a wide range of LAV II variants has been produced, including anti-tank, recovery, command and control, reconnaissance, armoured personnel carrier and ambulance. For domestic and international customers whose mission profiles do not require swim capability, nonamphibious LAV IIs are available. Proven in reconnaissance roles, the agile LAV II is an excellent choice for users seeking an amphibious platform with high mobility and transportability.
