Description  
A significant new chapter in the development of British military vehicle manufacturer, TMV, begins at the DVD 2010 show today with the unveiling of a fully-functioning six-wheel drive, six-wheel steer military vehicle in Special Forces guise. The newcomer is part of the on-going development of the innovative TMV platform and modular product range, with production scheduled for 2011. The TMV6x6M SF, which was demonstrated on the off-road course throughout the duration of the DVD 2010, comes just twelve months after TMV revealed the vehicle prototype. Responding to the changing nature of military threat, and its impact on the requirements of utility vehicles deployed in conflict situations, TMV adopted a fresh and unique design strategy and developed the vehicle concept from a clean sheet of paper, rather than accept compromise by modifying an existing platform.
 
Variants :
The TMV military vehicle range includes all-wheel drive, all-wheel steer 4x4, 6x6, 8x8 variants, using a common chassis and running gear.
 
 
Technical data 
Armament
The TMV 6x6M SF presented at DVD 2010 was equipped with a ring weapon system, armed with two 12.7 mm calibre machine guns, another 7.62 mm machine gun was mounted at the front of the vehicle.
Protection
The TMV 6x6M is designed to provide enhanced levels of protection against mines and IEDs (up to STANAG 4 levels of protection). To achieve best blast protection for occupants and minimise transmitted energy, a twin ‘V’ hull design has been developed by TMV and is universally used in the construction of all TMV model variants. It is constructed of stainless steel formers clad with belly blast plate throughout, its shape facilitating the dissipation of the blast energy wave at the point of impact, and also at the base of the occupant-protected cell. Located above the unique, integral V-shaped hull, the 6x6M modular superstructure is a layered approach of high-technology materials designed to minimise the weight of the appropriate protection solution.
Propulsion
The TMV 6x6M SF is powered by a mid-mounted Cummins ISBe5 in-line four-cylinder, 4,500cc turbocharged, water-cooled diesel engine, with a power output of 147 kilowatts (200bhp), generating up to 900Nm of torque. In the TMV 6x6M, this enables a limited top speed of 85mph/137 kph. As part of the design philosophy, the chassis has been packaged for all major four-cylinder long-stroke diesels commonly in use. The Allison 2500SP 6-speed, fully-automatic transmission utilised in the TMV 6x6M is also common to a wide range of military and civilian applications. It drives through a transfer gearbox with Hi and Lo ratios and via six Dana lockable differentials, which transfer the power via driveshafts to the six wheels. High power-to-weight ratio, coupled to permanent all-wheel-drive and adaptive all-wheel-steer, ensure a very high degree of on-road and off-road performance, with excellent manoeuvrability and approach/ departure angles (52%/50% respectively), due to minimal front and rear overhang. Fully-independent air suspension - assisted with twin coil-over dampers on all wheels - delivers excellent dynamic handling and good passenger comfort, and adjustable ride height allows the centre of gravity to be kept low for higher speed use, but crucially allows the vehicle to ride higher when a mine or IED threat is anticipated. The six-wheel steer system is adaptive, and can be programmed to allow touch-button change of steering configuration per axle, according to specific needs in the field.
Accessories
The TMV 6x6M SF has adjustable ride height, which can be raised if a perceived mine threat exists or lowered for higher speed operations where no threat is perceived. The seating configuration provides a very logical placing of occupants as far away from the front wheels as is possible , whilst maintaining a good level of visbility for off-road-conditions.
