Have them licence built here with minimal Canadization so we can get parts later when the plant shuts down.
MilEME09 said:Well that's what we normally pay anyway! Seriously though with issues like that, likely another company will win, be interesting to see who else bids.
PuckChaser said:Well we needed the vehicles 10 years ago, so we'll get them 10 years from now.
MilEME09 said:End of an Era, today 1 CMBG announced on Facebook they are beginning the divestment of the remaining MLVW's from service.
From the link:MilEME09 said:This morning CAF announced via social media the intention via draft RFP to replace our light and heavy logistics fleets. Good bye LSVW......eventually
CBH99 said:The project to replace the MSVW is complete, right?? Trucks delivered.
This is for LUVW specifically?
MilEME09 said:logistics fleet, so LSVW, HLVW and engineering equipment is my understanding.
Replacement of the LUVW both milcot and G wagon are a separate project.
suffolkowner said:So the LSVW and HLVW will be from the same manufacturer? Wikipedia has the LSVW at 1333 of the original 2879 and the HLVW at 591 of the original 1212, I wonder what the replacement numbers will be?
MilEME09 said:Hopefully several thousand of each, logistics fleets you can't always do more with less, because you can't be in two places at once. And on a DP you can't have multiple stores in one vehicle. Ammo, food, POL, salvage, etc.. all has to have its own truck. Plus you need all the varients as well, plus trailers.
suffolkowner said:What do you think the difference is between the HLVW replacement and the MSVS-SMP will be? The MSVS-SMP is already an 8x8, correct? So what can you do go 10x10 or duals?
MilEME09 said:Its not about wheels, its tonnage and capacity, given the upsizing of vehicles the HL replacement will likely be in the 12 to 16 ton range. Likely with a crane and a large cargo capacity.
suffolkowner said:But how do you get the capacity without adding another axle or wheels?
MilEME09 said:Thats upto individual companies to design but likely duel wheels in the rear is possible.
