Marine Assault Vehicle

MAV - Marine Assault Vehicle Overview

The Marine Assault Vehicle (MAV) is the latest technology amphibious vehicle designed by FNSS to meet the amphibious operational requirements.

During the beach landing phase of an amphibious operation, these vehicles are launched from landing helicopter docks (LHD) and are able to rapidly cover the distance between the vessel and shore, allowing marine units to land under armour protection. Once on land, they are able to operate alongside other armoured vehicles. The MAV owes its fire power to its 12.7 mm MG & 40 mm AGL remote controlled turret. Designed to support dual operation based on their mission requirements, armoured amphibious assault vehicles need to ensure superior capabilities both at sea and on land. A unique hull design and powerful water jets make the MAV highly mobile in the water with a speed of 7 knots, as well as on land, at 70 km/h maximum speed.

The base vehicle can be configured in different variants such as Personnel Carrier and Command-Post. Few navies worldwide possess such a capability

FNSS MAV, carries the armour protected amphibious fighting vehicle concept into the 21st century. Compared to similar systems, MAV can be considered superior in the following respects:

  • Number of personnel transported by the vehicle,
  • Level of ballistic and mine protection,
  • Its new generation remote controlled turret and
  • Its performance on land and in the water.
