Description: The BAE Systems RG33 is a family of mine resistant ambush protected (MRAP) vehicles features a monocoque V-shaped hull providing outstanding protection against improvised explosive devices (IEDs). The RG 33 is heavily influenced by the experience gained during 20th and early 21st centuries asymmetrical conflicts confronting military forces with insurgents. The vehicle family can be airlifted suing C-130-sized aircraft. Its standard equipment includes hydraulic ramp, a gunner's protection kit, a robotic arm, on-board exportable power supply for C4I systems, survivability gear, mine protected seating, air conditioning, and dedicated space for equipment stowage. Besides, RG33s are remote weapon capable and network enabled. BAE Systems unveiled the first RG33, an RG33L, vehicle at AUSA 2006.

The RG-33 may be equipped with modular add on armor kits, TRAPP transparent armor that provides excellent visibility and situational awareness, and run-flat tires. The levels of protection of the RG33 vehicle depends on the armor package but the basic model offers small and medium caliber firearms and mine blast protection. BAE Systems has designed the RG33 platform to serve as Infantry Carrier, Ambulance, Command and Control, Convoy Escort, Explosive Ordnance Disposal vehicle, etc. To date, the RG-33 vehicle family includes the RG-33 6x6 or RG-33L, the RG-33 4x4, Medium Mine Protected Vehicle (MMPV) 6x6, and Mine Resistant Recovery and Maintenance Vehicle (MRRMV) 6x6 variants.

The Mine Resistant Recovery and Maintenance Vehicle (MRRMV) is a further evolution of RG-33L 6x6 vehicle developed by BAE Systems. The MRRMV has been designed to speed and enhance the retrieval and repair of disabled MRAP vehicles, Medium Mine Protected Vehicles (MMPV) and other medium tactical vehicles in combat situations. The MRRMV was unveiled at AUSA Winter Symposium in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in late February 2008.

The MRRMV is a 40t class vehicle utilizing a 6x6 wheeled chassis and equipped with crane and recovery winch. All in, it is capable of up-righting, winching and towing all 30t class wheeled or tracked armored vehicle such as MRAP, Bradley and Stryker. Only the Abrams tank and the M88 recovery vehicle are not serviceable by the MRRMV. Its armor allows to keep up the pace with other combat wheeled vehicles providing battlefield maintenance, recovery and repair. A single MRRMV vehicle has enough room to carry up to two recovered crew and combat vehicle spares.
