  • 2. SIDE-VIEW M113A3/4 Gavin LAV3Stryker 11 tons (13.5 as IAV) 19-21 tonsThe absolute empty weight of a vanilla M113A3 Gavin according to UDLP Engineers is 20,989 lbs.The problem is we dont know exactly what the Army does in weight to a lav3 to make it a“lav3stryker”, but we do know the empty lav3 is 16.5 tons. If the GDLS/Army claims the basiclav3stryker is 19 tons empty then subtract 16.5 from 19 tons to get the weight of the junk they addto make it an “IAV” = 2.5 tons . 117” 98” 207” 176” 253” With Machine Guns Mounted 6’4”+ 5’7” Soldier Soldier
