10×10 Project: OSHKOSH LVSR MKR18 Heavy Cargo Transport System


I have had a great BREAK THROUGH! It came to me while surfing the net researching military machines.. and I figured out how to do this. Everyone always asks me about the “Capo” 8×8 truck I built a few years back. I never used it very much – and in this video I explain why.

I also have 5 RC4WD Bully Ver 2 Comp MOA Rock Crawler Axles. I want to do an Overkill Overhaul.. but now I’ve decided to build an entirely New Rig. I have figured out a worth-while marriage for these two rigs by using the principles I learned from BOTH MACHiNES. It is time to build the ULTiMATE MiLITARY TRANSPORT MACHINE.

I can’t think of a better conversion for PROJECT OVERKiLL, then a “LVSR MKR18 HEAVY TRANSPORT VEHiCLE”! LVSR stands for “Logistics Vehicle System Replacement”.

The Full 1:1 Scale machine is one to be admired and marvelled at. It is built by a company named Oshkosh Defence LLC.

Oshkosh Website Statement: “In today’s ever-evolving battlefield, the need for heavy tactical vehicles to keep pace – with the terrain, the environments, the threats, the demands and the troops – is critical to mission success.

MOBILITY, MAINTAINABILITY AND RELIABILITY FOR THE HEAVY FLEET.

OSHKOSH DEFENSE® LVSR MKR18 CARGO VEHICLE.

The unmatched mobility and multiple capabilities of the Oshkosh® LVSR cargo vehicle make it critical to mission success. With a 22.5-ton (20412 kg) on-road/16.5-ton (14969 kg) off-road payload, it has the capacity to carry whatever the mission requires. And with a 600 horsepower diesel engine, it also has the power. Engineered with advanced technologies like the TAK-4® independent suspension system and the Command Zone™ integrated control and diagnostics system, the LVSR cargo vehicle can haul ammunition, flatracks, ISO containers up to 20 feet (6.1 km), tactical bridging and support equipment as well as fuel containers. It even loads and unloads flatracks from trailers towed by the LVSR. With its extreme capabilities and performance, the LVSR cargo vehicle is the heavy-duty vehicle military personnel can rely on.

Integrated load handling system capable of loading and unloading a payload up to 22.5 tons (20412 kg)
Command Zone™ integrated control and diagnostics system provides effortless monitoring of critical components
All adapters and lift hardware are stored on the vehicle, providing immediate operational availability
Factory-installed armor integrated into vehicle design for greater survivability”

I am going to build this vehicle from methods we used on Project: Overkill , by combining them with the Capo Tatra 8×8.

This will be an ultimate off-road vehicle for RC ADVENTURES!
