The LAV-C2 featured a raised roof over the passenger compartment similar in purpose to the M577's. The driver and vehicle commander were provided with stations in the hull's front left corner, and a hatch was provided for the company or battalion commander in the raised roof behind the vehicle commander. The vehicle's machine gun was mounted at the vehicle commander's cupola. The rear doors were modified by making them overlap, doing away with the separate frames found on other LAV vehicles. Smoke grenade launchers were mounted on the side of the raised roof near the rear of the vehicle.
The LAV-C2 underwent upgrades to -A1 and -A2 standard like the LAV-25.
