General information
The TMV 6x6M is new lightweight wheeled military trucks 6x6 designed and manufactured by the British Company TMV Limited. The rapidly-changing marketplace, with a continually-evolving insurgent threat, has given birth to the unique, six-wheel drive, six-wheel steer, TMV 6x6M. This, the first in a line of British-designed, purpose-built vehicles from TMV, focuses on the logistical requirement for highly-manoeuvrable military transport weighing up to eight tonnes GVW. Significantly, the modular design concept enables product extension to 4x4 and 8x8 variants. The vehicle is scheduled for production in early 2011, following extensive field trials, with 4x4 and 8x8 variants to follow. By nature of time constraints and practicality, the majority of current vehicle solutions in this category have had to be based on existing chassis technologies, adapted for purpose. As such, they are inevitably compromised in certain aspects. Furthermore, continually-changing deployment requirements focus on the need to deliver multiple assets with low utilisation rates and a high logistic footprint and, in answer to the insurgent threat, a fresh approach to both ballistic and blast protection.

Technical data
Armament
At this time, the prototype version is not armed, but we can suppose that the TMV 6x6M can be armed for his self-protection.
Protection
The TMV 6x6M is equipped with an armour-clad, fully enclosed "bath tub" hull that houses all major components, offering significantly greater protection from mines and IEDs than conventional vehicles. Additional protection to the crew and passengers is provided by a composite cab and composite rear pod for troop carrying applications. the vehicle is designed to provide high levels of protection against ballistic threats. The TMV 6x6M is based on established aerospace and racing car construction principles, features a structural V-shaped tub chassis of stainless steel, entirely clad with blast plate, to provide enhanced levels of protection against mines and IEDs, married to the usage of new generation, high-technology construction materials.
Propulsion
The TMV 6x6M is powered by a 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. This enables a limited top speed of 85mph/137 kph, combined with first-class dynamic performance and driveability. Internal diesel fuel tanks enable a typical vehicle range of 700 miles/1,120 kilometres. High power-to-weight ratio, coupled to permanent six-wheel-drive and adaptive six-wheel-steer configuration, ensure a very high degree of on-road and off-road performance, with excellent manoeuvrability and approach/ departure angles (52% and 50% respectively), due to minimal front and rear overhang. Fully-independent air suspension ensures 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.
Accessories
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. All TMV 6x6M controls and instrumentation are integral within a single multi-functional electronic module mounted on the vehicle dashboard. A menu-based system allows touch-button access and scroll-through adjustment of all major dynamic functions of the vehicle, together with a default electronic instrument display when in normal drive mode.
