Tracked Light Armoured Vehicle (TLAV)

The high-performance Tracked Light Armoured Vehicle (TLAV) provides a tracked command and control, ambulance, and maintenance and recovery support capability for the Canadian Army. The 400 HP tunable engine (governed down to 350 HP) provides a top speed of 66 km/h. The improved armour and modern rubber band tracks provide superior cross-country mobility. The TLAV provides mobility on par with the Leopard 2 Main Battle Tank (MBT).

The Remote Weapon System (RWS), also known as the Protective Weapon Station (PWS), in combination with the 7.62 mm C6 general purpose machine gun, provides the TLAV Crew Commander with day, night, and all weather observation and firing capabilities from a stationary position. The TLAV Crew Commander can fire remotely (hatch closed) or manually (hatch open). This system is found on all TLAV variants except the M577A3.
