Mercedes-Benz unveils MRV 6.2 multirole vehicle

The Mercedes-Benz MRV 6.2, a further development of the LAPV 6.1-based project unveiled two years ago, was shown publicly for the first time at Eurosatory 2018.
According to Mercedes-Benz, the MRV 6.2 is now production-ready. The MRV 6.2 continues to be based on G-Class 461 series serial components, including the 3.428 m ladder frame chassis-cab chassis, which is uprated for the multirole vehicle (MRV) application.
