  The LAV25 Amphibious Recce Vehicle is amphibious and used by the USMC and US Army as well as the Canadian Army.

The LAV-25 is a lightly armoured vehicle. The base model is protected by light gauge high hardness steel armour (MIL-A-46100), varying in nominal thickness from 4.71 mm to 9.71 mm. This level of high-hardness steel armour is intended only to offer protection against small arms rounds such as the common 7.62 M1943 ball to achieve the lowest possible weight and cost.

Standard LAV fitted with a turret with 360° traverse, armed with an M242  25 mm chain gun with 420 rounds of 25 mm ammunition, both M791 APDS-T (Armour Piercing Discarding Sabot-Tracer) and M792 HEI-T (High Explosive Incendiary-Tracer), of which half is ready for use. One hundred fifty rounds are ready for use from one stowage bin, 60 from another stowage bin, the other 210 rounds are stowed elsewhere in the vehicle. A coaxial M240C MG is mounted alongside the M242, and a pintle-mounted M240B/G machine gun, with 1,320 rounds of 7.62 mm ammunition, is mounted on the turret roof.
