    Technical Data  
    Armament  
    • The BFL LSV can be fitted with a remote controlled weapon station armed with weapons up to 12,7 mm in caliber. shelter, box-type or even pick-up style bodies can be mounted behind a smaller two-seat cab.
     
    Design and protection  
    • The BFL LSV can be fitted with modular armour, which gives a protection against ballistic threats, favoring crew protection versus vehicle integrity. The LSV is designed to provide the crew with the maximum possible safety against anmmunition threats. The ground clearance has been maximized, moving away the origin of the explosion. The high payload of the LSV can be exploited for installed add-on armour kits. The basic kits provides ballistic protection against light weapons fire, while the heavier kit can protect the crew from ambushes,
     
    Propulsion  
    • The LMV utilizes a conventional C-section chassis but with longitudinal reinforcements and tubular cross-members to give the required torsional rigidity. At present two wheelbase lengths are available, the standard 3.2 m and the extended 3.5 m, these giving overall lengths of 4.704 and 5.504 m respectively. The LSV is motorized with a 140 KW(HP) power engine coupled to an automatic or a mechanical gearbox with with 6 forward gears and 1 reverse.
     
    Accessories  
    • The cab is fitted with two front adjustable and suspended seats, plus three suspended seats at the rear. A winch is mounted to the front of the vehicle. The LSV vehicle has been designed with a compact profile that allows one vehicle to be carried inside a CH-47 helicopter, while a Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules transport aircraft can carry two systems internally.

    • BFL-ELBIT.. MPV is based on an indigenously designed and integrated, mobility chassis; This not only provides outstanding mobility but also allows the customer to exploit modular logistic support system also. BFL ensures spare parts availability and allows automotive support to be on hand worldwide, contributing to the reduction of life-cycle costs. Fully developed in India, the MPV design exploits the technical expertise of two of the major companies involved in Armoured vehicles production, Elbit systems & BFL . An agreement was signed between the two companies, enabling BFL to respond to specific national/international capability requirements. Thus, BFL are leading the development on a 4x4 platform in the 13 T, class category to meet FORCEs requirements. 4 x 4 versions of MPV have already undergone very extensive trials in INDIA and abroad, and have proved to be an excellent match for the particular demands of the users.
