Mine Resistant Ambush Protected
|Country of Origin/Used by:||United States (US Marine Corps)|
|First Produced/Service Dates:||2007|
|Manufactured by:||International Military & Government, LLC (became NAVISTAR Defense)|
|Armament:||Unknown. However, it is
very possible it mounted the same armament as the MaxxPro MRAP.
Turret: (1) 5.56mm machine gun, 7.62mm mg, 12.7mm heavy machine gun or 40mm automatic grenade launcher.
|Engine:||6-Cylinder Turbo-Diesel (MaxxForce D8.7I6)|
|Miscellaneous Info:||Soon after the first of the
MaxxPro series of Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles was
produced (the M1224 MaxxPro),
International Military & Government, LLC (IMG) developed the MaxxPro XL.
Although the XL is on same IMG/NAVISTAR Workstar Model 7000 truck
chassis and contains many of the same automotive components as the
MaxxPro, it is a little longer and larger than its predecessor.
The XL is classified as a Category 2 MRAP; that classification being for
the mid-level vehicles (by weight, size and capacity) of the
classes of MRAP vehicles. All the other MaxxPro Vehicle Versions are
classifeid as Category 1 MRAP's.
The USMC bought and fielded only 16 total XL vehicles to fulfill the duties of a Joint Explosive Ordnance Disposal Rapid Response Vehicle (JERRV). However, no further orders followed before the availability of more capable MaxxPro versions: M1234 MaxxPro Plus, M1235 MaxxPro Dash and M1235A1 Dash DXM. Although the XL is technically the second vehicle in the MaxxPro series, it is often overlooked due to it's limited service and lack of official military designation. Features that help to visually identify the Maxx Pro XL version are: vertical armored radiator slats, single air vents on the sides of the hood, dual air screens behind the front doors, single rear wheels and longer rear compartment with three (3) side windows [compared to two (2) in all the other versions].
