MRAP II Caiman in action.

Based on the ultra-reliable Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) platform and the combat-proven Low Signature Armored Cab (LSAC), the Caiman incorporates the demonstrated performance of these components into a highly survivable and sustainable MRAP vehicle designed to defeat current and emerging threats on today’s battlefield.

Leveraging its high-volume tactical vehicle production facilities, BAE Systems is currently producing 40 Caiman vehicles per month and ramping up to 300 vehicles per month by January 2008.

BAE Systems is currently producing 1,154 Category I and 16 Category II vehicles to fulfill a $518.5 million MRAP contract, with the U.S. Marine Corps.

The high level of parts commonality with the FMTV ensures that the Caiman will maintain the same levels of readiness, mobility, serviceability, and worldwide support as the more than 36,000 FMTVs already fielded.
Caiman features:

10-man crew capacity
Armoring enhancement capable
Accepts all types of manned and remote weapons stations
85 percent parts commonality with standard FMTV models
Full-time all wheel drive
Fully automatic transmission
Electronic Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS)
Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
Class V Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETM)
