The International 7000-MV GTT is ideal for off-road missions as a hauler of heavy-duty material or converted to heavily armored personnel carrier. Based on Navistar’s versatile commercial platform, these trucks offer high commonality among variants and are easily adapted to suit the mission. The 7000-MV GTT offers a 5-ton off-road capacity and a weapon station that can handle up to .5 caliber weapons. The GTT has removable seating to transport up to 20 soldiers or cargo – including ISO containers.

The International 7000-MV is powered by the same heavy-duty turbocharged diesel engine that’s made a name tackling gravel pits, landfills and rugged construction sites. Plus, it offers up to a 50-degree wheel cut for a tighter turning radius. A proven performer in the commercial and military world, the 7000-MV is a hard-working model of efficiency that’s being used in Iraq and Afghanistan today as a general troop transporter; wrecker; water tanker; petroleum, oil and lubricant vehicle; and hazardous material truck.
