The LAV-150 is a Tier 2 progression Armored Fighting Vehicle under Sophie Wölfli's dealership.

History[ | ]

Class: Fire Support Vehicle
Developed: 1962-1963
Service: 1964+
Vehicles Built: cca 3000 (incl. all versions)
Operators: Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Egypt, Thailand and more than a dozen other smaller countries

The V-150 (or LAV-150) was a version of the extremely popular Cadillac Gage Commando platform, intended for export. This four-wheeled vehicle was rugged, reliable, well armored for its weight and, most importantly, cheap, making it a popular choice for many poorer third world countries that needed something well-protected to fight poorly armed insurgencies. Even though the firs Commando were built as early as in 1964, the marketing of the platform only ended in 2000, making it one of the most successful and least known armored fighting vehicles.

  • Amphibious: This vehicle is more resistant to taking on water, allowing it to traverse wider rivers or lakes.
