Engineer vehicle, the ABV

Post by Slash78 »

The ABV, Assault Breacher Vehicle is a new US Marine vehicle based on the M1 Abrams chassis. It seems to be the 'rebirth' of the US Army's Grizzly (Breacher), a program that was cancelled in 2001 (along with many other programs :evil: ). The Marine Corps is testing now and will be deploying the first vehicles to Iraq this summer. The Marine Corps is looking at purchasing 33 before the end of FY2007. It has several mine clearing devices, including a large mine plow and a pair of line charges. It has a two person crew and a .50 cal Heavy MG for self defense.
