Manufacturer: General Motors Of Canada Limited  
Product type: Armoured Vehicles  
Name: Wheeled armoured personnel carrier  

The 25 tonne (55,000 lb.) test platform is based on a LAV III Infantry Carrier Vehicle hull and retains maximum commonality with the existing LAV II/III-based systems, including the Stryker family of vehicles. As a result, these technology enhancements can also be offered as upgrades to existing LAV and Stryker fleets.

The LAV H offers a significant increase in the vehicle’s ability to survive prevalent threats through improvements to the baseline hull and the addition of IED protection kits. Through enhancements to the driveline, suspension, brake system and steering, the LAV H maintains superior mobility while significantly increasing its payload capacity. The vehicle also features a new power pack as well as an upgraded electrical power-generation capability. The scalable, open vetronics architecture provides operators with access to more information about vehicle system status and improved external situational awareness.
