Posted: January 18, 2012 in IFV"s

The Marine corps has its own breed of Land Attack Vehicles called the LAV (land attack vehicle). It is an heavily 8 wheeled assault vehicle. It is armed with a 25mm Bushmaster chain gun and a mounted M249 medium MG (medium machine gun). The LAV can carry up to 6 troops in a back compartment. On the top of the troop compartment there are hatches that open to allow the soldiers inside to fire from mobile cover. There is also access to the crew compartment from the troop transport section. The LAV is a very valuable tool used by the U.S. Marines
