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 RG-33L is a 6x6 utility MRAP Category II vehicle ordered by the US Army and the US Marine Corps (USMC) for its ongoing military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. These vehicles are also deployed as Heavy Armored Ground Ambulance (HAGA) and as Special Operations Command (SOCOM) vehicles. As of December 2008, the US Armed Forces had ordered more than 1,700 RG-33Ls. Despite their outstanding protection demonstrated in Iraq, these vehicles result too heavy and lack off-road mobility to operate in harsh environments and rough terrains in Afghanistan.
