The BAE Systems RG-33 Special Operations Command (SOCOM) Armored Utility Variant (AUV) MRAP is a modified Commercial Off-The-Shelf vehicle designed from the ground up to reduce casualties and increase survivability for personnel subjected to mine explosions, improvised explosive device (IED) detonations and small arms fire.
The RG-33 SOCOM AUV provides 12,000 pound cargo payload and 36,000 pound towing capability to enhance SOCOM operations. Large ballistic windows provide excellent situational awareness and multiple access points allow for rapid entry and egress of the crew. In addition, the vehicle features an Automatic Fire Suppression System (AFSS) and a combat-proven, V-shaped hull that provides superior blast protection against symmetrical, asymmetrical and unconventional explosive hazards.
The highly survivable RG-33 platform is backed by BAE Systems world-class flexible manufacturing network and by our full spectrum of engineering and logistics services.
