The MRAP Program & M13486 Cable

The US Military’s newest line of vehicular defense is MRAP, or Mine Resistant Ambush Protected, vehicles.  These vehicles are specially designed to survive IED (improvised explosive device) attacks, which are currently the leading killer of the US Military in Iraq.  The survival rate for soldiers in MRAP vehicles improves drastically.

The MRAP program is gaining favor quickly, and companies with these contracts are rapidly increasing production to meet growing demand.  For obvious reasons, the individual components of MRAP vehicles, for either ground or air, must be extremely tough.  They will be put to the ultimate test again and again.

The M13486 wire series is approved for MRAP applications.  M13486 is a heavy-duty, low-tension cable often used in ground vehicles or aircraft.  It is offers extremely high flexibility across a broad temperature range and is very durable, providing excellent resistance against abrasion, weather, fungus, and fluids.  This resistance makes M13486 good for exposed applications, including the underside of MRAP military vehicles.

Allied Wire & Cable maintains an extensive stock of M13486 cable at great prices, available in both small and large quantities.  If you’re looking for military-approved wire and cable products for use in MRAP vehicles, contact Allied for a competitive price quote today.
