Marines Upgrade AAVs

July 24, 2019



this is a survivability upgrade to our current system by the upgrades that we did on the vehicles that are behind me here we think we can we can extend the service life of this vehicle and make it make it perform better and we think that this system is going to make this vehicle operationally relevant in the current and the future operating environment for for years to come what we've done is we have gone back and really honed in on the force protection survivability of this vehicle similar capabilities in the sense that it does the exact same thing – this one's got a beefed up survivability aspect to it so underbody protection spall liner last minute getting seats like I'm sitting in right now and also joint ceramic armor on the outside the boy ceramic armor is equal and the same thing as eeeek armor that we have on the current vehicle but what it does is it brings back and adds on a new capability meaning that it brings back the reserve buoyancy so going from 18% on the old vehicle to now 22 percent I feel incredibly safer in this vehicle than I do in the old platform this vehicle is definitely a step in the right direction and I believe that it's definitely something that the fleet will definitely appreciate and definitely the Marines especially the O 3 11s they'll definitely appreciate this platform because it is intended to keep them safe and alive

    My grandson will deploy soon in one that has NOT been upgraded. Lets get moving people and keep our Marines as safe as possible.

    Now upgrade the M40 to chamber .338 or .300 the Corps should allow their scout snipers to not be limited by the 7.62s lack of range

    How will it survive ship to shore operations? How fast can it get the 0311 from the horizon to the beach? Where was the turret for the demo? With blast seats installed what does troop capacity look like? How does it solve the final drive issues when in sandy environments for to long? A one minute video is detrimental to the message, do more in depth videos explaining the systems!

    Better than nothing I guess… still no where near as good as those ACVs though. You want it survivable? Simple solution. Make it do more than 5 freaking knots in the water.
