The Caiman MTV provides greater levels of survivability and mobility

SEALY, Texas -- BAE Systems has received three delivery orders from the U.S. Marine Corps, totalling more than $148 million, for continued support of Caiman Multi Theater Vehicles (MTV).

Work on these orders includes:

  • Providing 371 Caiman MTV rolling chassis with conversion kits, and adaptable Underbody Survivability Kits

  • Providing Continental United States Integration and enhancements of 1,040 Caiman MTVs

  • Procuring kits for a series of enhancements to the Caiman MTV

“These orders will continue the cost-effective upgrading of currently fielded Caiman vehicles. The upgrades provide an unparalleled combination of adaptable, high-level protection and vehicle cross-country agility, while retaining the Caiman’s ability to carry 11 combat personnel effectively,” said Chris Chambers, vice president and general manager of Tactical Wheeled Vehicles for BAE Systems. “The lessons we’ve learned from our current integration of Caiman vehicles in Kuwait will allow us to quickly and efficiently return the vehicles, with significant enhancements, to our troops.”

Work on all three orders will be performed at the BAE Systems Sealy, Texas facility. The orders were awarded by the U.S. Marine Corps System Command and deliveries are planned to continue into 2013.

Caiman MTV provides an effective combination of interior capacity, tactical mobility, operator comfort and survivability. Caiman MTV achieves greater survivability through an enhanced monolithic floor, a strengthened chassis frame and highly effective blast absorbing seats. The vehicle’s improved mobility is achieved with a greater vehicle track width, a strong independent suspension and an upgraded powertrain.
