The MSVS Truck is a vehicle in Squad. It is the current primary transport and logistics vehicle of the Canadian Army. The MSVS truck replaces the MLVW trucks which have been in service since the 1980s.


general information[edit | edit source]

The MSVS truck is a vehicle that was selected to replace Canada's MLVW trucks as part of the Medium Support Vehicle System Project. The truck is offered in various wheel and engine configurations such as 4x2, 4x4, 6x4, and 6x6, though only the 6x6 variant is present in Squad. Entering service in 2005, the MSVS is currently operated by several countries, including Canada, Afghanistan, and Iraq.

The MSVS is 31.5 ft (9.6 m) long, 7.9 ft (2.4 m) wide, and 10.33 ft (3.15 m) high. The MSVS uses an engine which, based on its configuration, can develop anywhere from 270 hp to 330 hp. Based on the configuration of the chassis, the MSVS truck series can have an operational range of up to 500 mi (800 km).

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The MSVS is only used by the Canadian Army.

  • Both MSVS variants have the highest passenger capacities out of all trucks in their respective classes. This is due to the longer flatbed present on the truck.
  • The MSVS has no armament or armor. This means that the vehicle can be disabled by small arms fire while larger caliber weapons such as the M2 .50 and NSV(T) heavy machine guns can destroy it.
  • While on the MSVS, passengers on the flatbed are directly exposed to enemy fire. Avoid rushing forward objectives with the logistics variant of this vehicle and retreat if engaged by an armored vehicle.
  • The logistics variant of the MSVS can be used to transport or redirect supplies to and from FOBs. Avoid abandoning the logistics variant of the truck in an unrecoverable area.
  • For more information, see "Loading and Unloading Supplies" section of Logistic System.
