The ARV vehicles have a two-man or three-man crew and carry equipment and spare parts to conduct on-site vehicle repairs. ARV has an integrated crane and recovery winch for use in helping right overturned vehicles and recovering mired vehicles. It is capable of towing Manned Ground Vehicles, Armed Reconnaissance Vehicles, and Multifunction Utility/Logistics and Equipment vehicles. It also supports all field maintenance tasks that require lifting, welding, cutting and heating.
