Description: The General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems Light Strike Vehicle (LSV) is a vehicle specifically designed to fly internally the United States Marine Corps (USMC) MV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft as well as the US Air Force CV-22 and CH-53 and MH-47 helicopters. Also known as the Internally Transportable Vehicle (ITV), it will be used in a variety of operations such as reconnaissance, raids, Tactical Recovery of Aircraft and Personnel (TRAP), airfield seizures in support of Over-the-Horizon amphibious operations, Irregular Warfare and Enhanced Company Operations (ECO).

This high mobility, weapons-capable platform can carry enough fuel, water, ammunition, and food for a 3-day mission, while safely transporting a crew of four. It can be equipped with an M2 .50-cal. (12.7mm), MK-19 or MK-240G machine gun, further enhancing the unit's mission performance and survivability. The first LSV was fielded in early August 2009 with the USMC 1st Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment in preparation for its deployment with the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU).
