Designation:

Caiman MRAP

Info
Manufacturer: BAE Systems Land and Armament  
Product type: Auxiliary Vehicles  
Name: Mine protected carrier  

BAE Systems' third MRAP vehicle, called Caiman, is based on the ultra-reliable Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) platform and the combat-proven Low Signature Armored Cab (LSAC). The resulting Category I / Category II 6x6 Caiman MRAP vehicles incorporate the demonstrated performance of these components into a highly survivable and one of the most sustainable MRAP vehicles available today. With 95 percent parts commonality with the standard FMTV models, the Caiman MRAPs will maintain the same levels of readiness, mobility, serviceability, and worldwide support as the more than 36,000 FMTVs already fielded. This commonality means soldiers are already trained to support the FMTV and are familiar with its maintenance procedures, which are supported by a full supply chain.

Caiman's automotive design features include: Full-time all wheel drive; Fully automatic transmission; Electronic Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS); Anti-lock Braking System (ABS); and Class V Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETM).

The Caimans have the capacity to carry 10 individuals and can accept all types of manned and remote weapon stations. In addition to the inherent ballistic protection provided by the design and materials used for the personnel compartment, the vehicles can also be equipped with enhanced armor packages to protect against future threats.

Leveraging its world-class tactical vehicle production facilities in Sealy, Texas, BAE Systems is producing 300 Caimans per month to meet urgent MRAP needs. Current requirements call for a total of 1,154 Caiman Category I and 16 Category II vehicles to fulfill a $518.5 million MRAP contract. The initial vehicles were delivered within six weeks of the contract award, with all vehicles slated for delivery before the end of February 2008.
