The M1117 ASV is a turreted, armored, all-wheel drive vehicle that supports U.S. Army military police missions — such as rear area security, law and order operations, battlefield circulation and enemy prisoner of war operations — over the entire spectrum of war and operations other than war as well as convoy protection missions.

The ASV provides protection to the crew compartment, gunner’s station and the ammunition storage area. The turret is fully enclosed, with both an MK-19 40mm grenade machine gun and a .50-caliber machine gun, and a multi-salvo smoke grenade launcher. The ASV provides ballistic, blast and overhead protection for its four-person crew. The ASV, with a payload of 3,600 pounds, 400-mile-plus range, and top speed of nearly 70 miles per hour, ensures both lethality and survivability to the Warfighter.
