Navistar Defense, LLC received a $110 million delivery order today to provide 650 independent suspension kits for International(r) MaxxPro(r) Plus Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles.

"Our ability to jointly create and rapidly integrate new components, sub assemblies and rolling chassis off commercially-based platforms creates value for the military acquisition community. Integrating proven commercial components into the MaxxPro fleet results in an overall lower cost of ownership for the government and ultimately the taxpayer."
