Description: The Caiman is a family of mine-resistant ambush protected (MRAP) vehicles based on reliable Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) platform and the combat-proven Low Signature Armored Cab (LSAC). The highly survivable Caiman platform in 4x4 and 6x6 variants is manufactured by BAE Land Systems for the US Army and US Marine Corps MRAP program under the Global War on Terror (GWOT). Their parts commonality with the 80,000+ FMTVs ensures high levels of readiness, mobility, serviceability, and worldwide support.

The Caiman MTV (Multi-Terrain Vehicle) Ambulance is a variant of the Caiman 6x6 MRAP vehicle providing an effective combination of interior capacity, tactical mobility, operator comfort and survivability by utilizing its large interior volume to accommodate up to four litters, or six patients upright. The vehicle is fitted with a sophisticated Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system that regulates the interior to protect patients and medical technicians from temperature extremes. A rapid deployable ingress and egress ramp enables ease of patient loading and unloading. It is powered by a 6-cylinder Caterpillar C7 diesel engine developing 330-hp. The Caiman MTV Ambulance vehicle was introduced at the US Army's AUSA Exhibition in October 2010 and was ordered early that month for evaluation by the United States MRAP Joint Program Office (JPO).
