A global leader in transformational defence innovations, General Dynamics Land Systems‐Canada is Canada’s Strategic Provider of Land Platforms

As the preferred bidder of the Government of Canada’s Logistics Vehicle Modernization (LVM) program, General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada is showcasing The Power Team’s solution with partners Marshall Canada, Mercedes‐Benz (Daimler Trucks), Soframe, and Manac Inc.

The Power Team’s LVM solutions show complete capability, including the Zetros Daimler light truck baseline, the light trailer and a representative pod. With one common chassis that has over 90% commonality across all variants, the solution is a powerful and versatile platform designed to provide the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) with reliability, durability and ruggedness under the most adverse climate and operational conditions.

The high commonality across the CAF’s new fleet eliminates the need to support and maintain two completely different fleets which will provide savings to Canada through a common logistics footprint that reduces the procurement and sustainment cost and increases training efficiencies. In addition, The Power Team’s Indigenous Participation Plan (IPP) commits to over $100 million and 10 percent of the contract value (double the request from Canada) for Indigenous participation.

With over 200 years of collective experience, The Power Team is designed to deliver excellence.

General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada is also showcasing the Light Armoured Vehicle (LAV) 6.0 Technology Demonstrator. The result of world-class Canadian innovation, the LAV 6.0 remains the highly capable and protected baseline vehicle that is the backbone of the Canadian Army’s combat vehicle fleet.

It is the platform on which General Dynamics continues to build to meet the changing capability needs and requirements of its customers. The demonstrator showcases a variety of future capabilities integrated in a modular fashion, into the LAV 6.0 platform. Responding to the Canadian Army’s need to digitize, it includes a foundational digital architecture with scalable and modular hardware and software for next-generation capabilities, all with embedded cyber resilience.
