Logistics Vehicle System Replacement (USMC)


August 2006: Oshkosh and Plasan Sasa won a US Marine Corps contract to supply armor kits for 700 LVSR trucks. The kits will be developed by Plasan Sasa beginning 2007, to be followed by deliveries through 2010.

Logistics Vehicle System Replacement (LVSR) trucks – which will replace the current Marine Corps LVS - will be used as a heavy tactical logistics distribution system for the transport of bulk liquids and cargo, ammunition, containers, and tactical support equipment, and will also be utilized for wrecker, towing, and recovery missions. The armor kit, engineered from composite materials, will be customized to protect the driver’s cabin against Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), mines, and other threats. Plasan's modular Armor Protection Kits (APKs) are designed for field assembly, and can be transferred from one vehicle to another, enabling rapid responses to evolving situations.
