Miscellaneous Info:

The NZLAV Infantry Mobility Vehicle is closely related to the Canadian LAV III APC as it is also based upon the MOWAG Piranha III.  The US Army's Stryker IFV Series is similar as it is also derived from the LAV III design, although looking very different since it lacks the NZLAV's turret. The only other NZLAV variant is the LAV-R (Recovery) vehicle although the IMV's can mount a Light Obstacle Blade (LOB) if needed.
