Textron Marine and Land System will display its COMMANDO vehicle at the AUSA 2012. The company offers three lines of COMMANDO four-wheeled armored vehicles - COMMANDO Advanced, COMMANDO Select and COMMANDO Elite. The COMMANDO family of vehicles has been tested and offers a range of protection exceeding MRAP level, unmatched on-road/off-road mobility and ample firepower. COMMANDO Select armored personnel carriers include variants that can carry up to 10 occupants and offer an enhanced combination of lethality, survivability, mobility and sustainability. MRAP-level 1 crew protection is built into all COMMANDO Select vehicles. The COMMANDO Elite features with digital backbones that provide MRAP-level 2 mine-blast protection and delivers lethality through multiple sensors. Tom Walmsley, Textron Marine & Land Systems Senior Vice President and General Manager, said, "Our more than four-decade heritage of delivering trusted armored vehicles, going back to our days as Cadillac Gage, is the inspiration and foundation for these new generation COMMANDO vehicles. Our versatile family of armored vehicles, proven in the toughest environments, give operators the ability to go almost anywhere and perform nearly any mission with confidence”.
