Capable of accommodating 4 personnel, the JGSDF Light Armored Vehicle is fitted with a 160hp liquid cooled 4-cycle 4-cylinder diesel engine, allowing it to reach top speeds of 100km/h. Weighing just 4.5 tons, it is able to be carried by a CH-47J helicopter or C-130H transport aircraft for emergency air-drops. The gun mount on the roof can be fitted with a 5.56mm MINIMI machine gun or Light Anti-Tank Guided Missile. Vehicles deployed to Iraq were fitted with reinforced bulletproof windshields, with some vehicles fitted with wire cutters and a rotational armored cover around the gun mount for extra protection.
