The Light Armored Vehicle III Upgrade (LAV UP) series (commonly referred to as the LAV 6.0), is a MUCH improved version of the Canadian LAV III. The improvements were based upon lessons learned from the Canadians' service in Afghanistan. In fact, there have been so many improvements and upgrades made to the new LAV 6.0, it is for most intents and purposes, a completely new vehicle when compared to the earlier LAV III. Improvements include a double V hull, new driveline, new suspension, larger wheels/tires, more powerful engine, advanced electronics and new visual/targeting systems. Little more than the bare hull, cannon and a few small assemblies remain unchanged from the initial vehicle.
The fielded (and forthcoming) Canadian Army LAV 6.0 variants are the Command Post Vehicle, Engineer Vehicle, Infantry Section Carrier, Observation Post Vehicle and Reconnaissance Vehicle. Other variants available from GDLS-Canada include the Combat Support Vehicle (CSV) - Ambulance (A) and CSV - Maintenance & Recovery (MR).
