Soon after the earlier
RG-33L 6x6 MRAP went into action, it
was quickly determined that they needed additional armor protection to
defeat enemy IED attacks; most notably explosively formed penetrators.
To counter the new threat, the
RG-33L "Plus" vehicles were
built with upgrades such as
adjustable effector racks,
passive applique' FRAG 6 armor packages, thicker ballistic glass and a
more powerful engine. Also, the "Plus" vehicles are 3.9 inches
taller then the earlier RG-33's.
This vehicle was also classified as a Category 2 MRAP; that
classification being the mid-level vehicles (by weight, size and troop
capacity) of the three (3) classes of MRAP
Like it's predecessors, the RG-33L "Plus" vehicles could also fulfill multiple missions including Ambulance, Command/Control, Convoy Escort, Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD), Troop Transport, etc. The vehicles were built as the Infantry Tactical Vehicle (their "base configuration) which could be quickly converted to different roles and back again. The only official variant of this series built was the M1237A1 RG-33L Heavy Armored Ground Ambulance (HAGA) "Plus".
