BAE Systems M-ATV

BAE Systems has successfully developed a smaller and lighter off-roading version of their Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle. Dubbed as the baby MRAP, or M-ATV, the car is specially designed for the tough terrain of Afghanistan’s mountainous back-country. The M-ATV is equipped with a fully independent suspension, turbocharged V8 diesel, a powered weapons ring turret on the roof, the all-important blast-dispersing V-hull bottom, and a selection of infrared cameras.
