LAV III Light Armoured Vehicle Low-poly 3D model
An accurately scaled and modeled low polygon LAV III Infantry Section Carrier of the Canadian Army. With a polygon count of just 2660 (4970 tris) this model has been professionally developed for simulation and game use. It is properly uv mapped and fully textured using one 2048 x 2048 TGA with integrated alpha channel to provide opacity. The texture could easily be re-sized to 1024 x 1024 without loss of detail, if required. This model is available here in .3ds, .fbx, .flt, .lwo (v 6.0), .max (v 2008), and .obj formats.
The LAV III is the primary mechanized infantry vehicle of the Canadian Army, based on the Swiss Piranha IIIH design. With a crew of three it can transport seven infantry soldiers at speeds of up to 100 kilometres per hour. Its primary armament is a 25mm stabilised chain gun, supplemented by a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun and a 5.56mm or 7.62mm pintle-mounted machine gun. Since entering service in 1999 the LAV III has seen extensive use on peacekeeping missions in the Former Yugoslavia, Ethiopia and Eritrea, and during Canada’s mission in Afghanistan. A variant of the LAV III is operated by the New Zealand Army, referred to as the NZLAV, and the United States Army’s Stryker vehicles are based on the LAV III design.
