Mk 37 Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement (MTVR) HIMARS Resupply Vehicle (RSV)
The Mk 37 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) Re-Supply Vehicle (RSV) variant of the MTVR family was a dual rated, 6x6 truck suitable for use on all types of roads, highways, and cross-country terrain.
The Mk 37 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) Re-Supply Vehicle (RSV) would carry ammunition to support the HIMARS weapon system. The Mk 37 was equipped with a Material Handling Crane (MHC) and a cargo bed configured with rocket pod locator shoes designed to transport two Multiple Launch Rocket Systems Family of Munitions (MFOM) pods over all road and terrain conditions. The MHC was capable of loading and off loading the MFOM pods to the Re-Supply Vehicle (RSV) and Re-Supply Trailer (RST) and from the RSV or RST to the ground. A HIMARS section would consist of a launcher, 2 RSVs and RSTs. The Mk 37 HIMARS RSV entered service in FY04.
As of 2009, there was no A1 Ready to Accept Armor (RTAA) variant of the Mk 37 HIMARS RSV.
