|Navistar Defense highlights three tactical vehicles at AUSA 2012.|
Navistar Defense, LLC showcases three tactical vehicles this week at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting. The Special Operations Tactical Vehicle for the Ground Mobility Vehicle (GMV) 1.1 competition, the Indigen Armor Non-Standard Tactical Truck (NSTT) and the International® MaxxPro® Recovery Vehicle - Performance Kit (MRV-PK) demonstrate the latest in vehicle technology.
Navistar Special Operations Vehicle
The Special Operations Tactical Vehicle and the NSTT are both designed to incorporate scalable armor packages to meet multiple threat levels encountered by special operators. The two vehicles share more than 60 percent vehicle commonality and are engineered to carry large payloads at off-road racing speeds in the roughest of mission terrain. Each vehicle can be integrated with a full government furnished Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) suite.
“The Special Operations Tactical Vehicle and the NSTT share similar vehicle capabilities to meet the rigors and unique requirements of special operators,” said Archie Massicotte, president, Navistar Defense. “We worked closely with Indigen Armor on the design of our Special Operations Tactical Vehicle and it is a solid vehicle entry for the Special Operations Command GMV 1.1 competition.”
“We saw a need in theater for additional capabilities and we have designed a retrofit solution ready today for our recovery vehicles currently in service,” said Massicotte “Our current MaxxPro vehicles have been tasked with recovery missions requiring unprecedented mobility and towing capabilities and our performance kit is a cost-conscious solution that anticipates future mission needs. This offering also comes on the heels of our recent MaxxPro survivability upgrade, which we can also make available for the MaxxPro Recovery Vehicle.”
