The M1117 Armored Security Vehicle (ASV) supports the military police missions of law enforcement, area security, battlefield circulation and enemy prisonerof war operations during wartime and operations other than war for corps-support MP companies. In addition, the ASV will serve as the convoy protection platform
(CPP). The vehicle system is a turreted, armored, all-wheel drive vehicle that provides increased ballistic and land mine protection. Its primary weapon is the Mk 19 automatic grenade launcher, but it can also mount the M2 .50 caliber machine gun. The fully enclosed turret includes a day/night sight for target acquisition.
