Originally, the URO VAMTAC was developed by the Spanish company URO, Vehiculos Especiales S.A. to meet the requirements of the Spanish military for a multipurpose, air-portable, high mobility off-road vehicle with good payload capacity.

The VAMTAC LTV (Light Tactical Vehicle) has been developed by UROVESA to complete the wide range of this independent suspension platform, with a light vehicle capable of developing tactical and logistic functions.

The VAMTAC LTV is based on a pickup design with the engine at the front, the crew in the middle, and a cargo area at the rear. The body is made of aluminum to reach a weight of 3,500 kg for the non-armored version. It has a maximum payload capacity of 1,000 kg. The vehicle is fitted with a single or a double cabin able to accommodate up to five people.

The VAMTAC LTV is a 4x4 light tactical vehicle using independent suspension with a 2-speed transfer case. The vehicle can be fitted with different types of engines but the standard version is motorized with a Euro 3 engine developing 150 hp. With its special driveline with 100% mechanical locking system together with the high power/weight ratios and its large ground clearance allowing the LTV exceeds the performance of most existing light-duty 4x4 vehicles.

At FEINDEF 2021, the roof of the VAMTAC LTV was fitted with a light remotely operated weapon station armed with one 7.62mm machine gun. Today, combat vehicles, as well as non-combat vehicles, need to be equipped with weapon stations to increase protection against ambush attacks. Tactical and logistic convoys have become privileged targets on the new battlefields.
