The LAV 6.0 is an infantry fighting vehicle featured in Squad. It was introduced in the Alpha 15.3 update with the Canadian Army.[1]

General information[edit | edit source]

The LAV 6.0 is a heavily upgraded variant of the LAV III (Kodiak) ordered by the Canadian Government in stages from 2011 to 2017. The LAV III was beginning to show its age after a decade and a half of service, and it was determined that an upgrade program for the existing fleet was cheaper than purchasing a new vehicle entirely. General Dynamics Land - Canada were awarded the contract and by December 2019 they had upgraded 616 vehicles to the LAV 6 configuration. The upgrade program included a more powerful engine, increased armour protection, new steering and brake hydraulics, larger crew hatches, higher ground clearance. a double-V shaped hull for mines and IEDs, improved fire control and optics for the main gun, and a complete overhaul of the internal data displays. The final result was a vehicle that weighed in 17,000 lbs heavier than the original LAV III, and had increased armour protection across the board.
