Marine Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle
« on: July 03, 2006, 01:05:04 AM »
Random questions about this vehicle

I know that its a Montero modified according to PMC specs, and its one of MBLT's brainchildren.

  • How many of these vehicles have been produced?
  • Are more on the way?
  • What company is actually reponsible for making the modifications?
  • Who designed it?
  • Will there be purely troop carrier versions of this vehicle?

the MMPV is a good substitute to the very expensive Humvee. perhaps MBLT and his team will help develop improved MMPVs for the PMC and MMPVs for the Army. ;)

The PA appears to have their own plans. From: http://timawa.net/forum/index.php?topic=3125.0

Heard the Army adopted flatbed L300s in 4x2 for light troop transport. Also heard they are already bidding it out for procurement.

an L-300?! what the!!! why the L-300? the PA should have something that has 4 x 4 capabilities in it similar to the Pajero, the Land Cruiser or the Land Rover. :huh:

One question. Won't we have problems with patent rights if we mass produce this? The design alone is that of the original.

The Chinese made some minor adjustments on their design,



and others made it a little better,  swim!

No, its very different from the Humvee.  Vehicle width alone makes it different.  It's not a clone.  If they make a fuss we can always make a body similar to (but not an exact copy of) a G-wagon or a Defender.

and others made it a little better,  swim!



Armored and swimming.  Wouldn't that be great for the Marines!

Maybe try some of these technology on the drawing boards

Just like any Humvee clones, further development can be made to have more speed like this

How about Cuban illegal immigrants?

Freedom Bid in Floating '51 Chevy Truck
July 23, 2003

MIAMI (Reuters) - The 12 Cubans who tried to sail a 1951 Chevy truck from the communist-ruled island to the United States got no marks from U.S. authorities for their creativity.

The would-be emigrants were sent back home.

Since Fidel Castro's 1959 revolution, Cubans have tried to leave the Caribbean island on rudimentary rafts, on giant truck inner tubes, in stolen boats and planes, even by windsurfer.

But no one remembers anyone attempting the 90-mile crossing of the Florida Straits in a floating flatbed truck with 55-gallon (250-litre) drums strapped to its sides, tires still in place, a propeller attached to its drive shaft and a driver behind the wheel.

"We've seen surfboards, pieces of Styrofoam, bathtubs, refrigerators. But never an automobile," Coast Guard Petty Officer Ryan Doss said on Thursday.

A U.S. government plane spotted the bright-green truck chugging through the water at 8 mph (13 kph) on July 16 about 40 miles south of Key West, just over halfway from Cuba to Florida. The Cubans had fashioned a makeshift, bright yellow shelter on the truck's bed.

"The truck's engine was actually running, propelling it through the water," Doss said.

The Coast Guard picked up the 12 Cubans from the vintage vehicle and took them back to the island on Sunday.

The truck was deemed a hazard to navigation and was sent to the bottom.

Under the U.S. immigration policy known as "wet foot, dry foot," Cubans who manage to set foot on U.S. soil are usually allowed to stay while those stopped at sea are routinely sent back to Cuba.

why not have a isuzu 4x4 truck engine,suspension, and chassis..and bolt-in a modified or a newly made look alike of a humvee body..

just a question,if it is a modified montero, has the chassis and suspension been modified or changed to accept the load that it has to carry? From the looks of it, the lenght is quite long compared to the standard montero.

on the other hand, I do praise their enginuity..it really looks like a humvee.. :D

can we ask Sarao, Francisco and the local jeepney builders of San Pablo, Laguna to build us copies of the Humvee and the MMPV? (|8| :eyes: :lol:
