"All Mountain Lion variants will combine and improve upon generations of combat-proven designs from our VMMD Husky currently deployed with US forces in Afghanistan and Iraq," said CSI President, Shon Craig. "The end result is a mobile, protective and versatile next-generation line of vehicles capable of operating in mountainous and rough terrain."
The Mountain Lion family of vehicles span the weight, protection and performance range from JLTV to MRAP, creating:
-- Increased Mobility
-- Permanent 4 wheel steering that creates a turning circle of 40ft.
-- Fully independent suspension with a 16" ground clearance.
-- Enhanced and Extended Protection
-- One piece (monocoque) V-shaped armored hull for crew and critical sub-systems.
-- A and B-kit armor tailored to customer requirements.
-- Performance and Versatility
-- Multiple seating configurations for up to 12 occupants.
-- Increased payload for a wide range of command and control functions as well as route clearance and combat support roles.
-- Maximum use of commercial components to enhance maintainability and supportability.
-- Designed to enable the option of a diesel-electric hybrid drive train.
CSI, in partnership with RSD, has been a consistent resource to the US Army and Marine Corps, for the successful acquisition, testing, development and production of numerous mine-detection and counter-IED vehicles and systems currently deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq.
