According to a rendering disclosed by KSSB, the future MRV vehicle will be based on the short-cabin 6x6 variant of the Iveco Trakker 380 truck. Army Recognition understands that KSSB is developing a new lift tow system adapted to the Italy-made platform. The future system will be able to lift vehicles weighing up to 26 tons.

The vehicle will most probably be powered by the CURSOR 13 - F3B 440 hp diesel engine used for the Trakker AT440T44T/P variant.

Once developed, the MRV will be proposed to bolster Malaysian Army recovery capabilities, mainly relying on six WZT-4 tracked recovery vehicles.
