   The Oshkosh Multi-Mission Recovery System or MMRS was developed as a private venture. This machine has exceptional capabilities. It seems that as of 2014 only a demonstrator exists. There were no production orders on this vehicle.

   This heavy recovery vehicle is based on the Oshkosh LVSR 10x10 heavy high mobility truck. These truck are in service with the US Marine Corps. The US marines operate the MKR15 wrecker. It is also based on 10x10 LVSR, but has a less capable material handling crane and some other differences.

   The main role of this machine is recovery of damaged, immobilized, swamped, stuck, or overturned vehicles. The MMRS can recover mine resistant ambush protected vehicles, largest tactical wheeled vehicles and tracked combat vehicles with a maximum weight of about 45 000 kg. The MMRS can also provide maintenance service and tow them to assembly points or maintenance units.

   This machine is fitted with a 3-section boom, that extends to 12.5 m. It is mounted on rotating platform and rotates through 360 degrees. It can lift 34 000 kg at 4 m radius from the vehicle. Maximum lifting capability is over 45 000 kg. At a maximum reach the boom has a lifting capacity of 7.7 t. There are two boom recovery winches. The crane can be used for recovery operations, as well as other load handling tasks. It can be operated externally of from within the armored cab.

   There are two main winches. Each with 18 000 kg capacity. Winches can be also operated externally or from within the cab. There are four outriggers and one large rear spade to stabilize the vehicle during craning and winching operations.

   On hard surface roads the Oshkosh MMRS can tow vehicles with a maximum weight of 47 600 kg. Vehicle is fitted with rigid or non-rigid hitches. Damaged or uncontrolled vehicles are towed in suspended semi-lifted position. Vehicles are towed to the nearest shelters, assembly points of repair depots.

   This heavy recovery vehicle is operated by a crew of two. The cab is fitted with an integrated armor protection and energy-absorbing seats. It provides protection from small arms fire and mine blasts. Add-on armor kit can be fitted for a higher level of protection.

   A demonstrator vehicle was fitted with a shielded machine gun mount. It can be fitted with 12.7-mm machine gun or 40-mm automatic grenade launcher for self-defense.

   This heavy recovery vehicle has good cross-county mobility over any terrain due to its 10x10 configuration with all-wheel drive and powerful engine. The MMRS is powered by a Caterpillar C15 15.2-liter turbocharged diesel engine, developing 600 hp. The same engine is used across the range of Oshkosh LVSR vehicles. It is mated to Allison 7-speed automatic transmission. This vehicle shares a number of automotive components with the Oshkosh MTVR heavy utility truck, that is used by US Marine Corps. In order to reduce turning radius the MMRS has a four-axle steering on 1, 2, 4 and 5 axle. Vehicle is fitted with a central tyre inflation system. Without preparation it can ford water obstacles up to 1.5 m deep.

   The Oshkosh MMRS can be airlifted by C-17 Globemaster III or C-5A Galaxy aircraft.
