As one of the leading producers of Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles, Navistar Defense, LLC will compete to supply the next generation of MRAPs with a vehicle based on its International MXT vehicle platform. The company delivered two vehicles today to undergo testing in the U.S. military’s Mine Resistant Ambush Protected All Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV) program. “We are proud to submit a vehicle based on our MXT platform, which was designed to fill a gap that existed between smaller traditional armored 4x4’s and larger transport vehicles,” said Archie Massicotte, president, Navistar Defense. “By utilizing our existing commercial platform, we are able to rapidly advance our vehicle design and provide the military with a product that supports mission needs in Afghanistan.” While the company competes to provide the U.S. military with M-ATV vehicles specially designed for Afghanistan, Navistar is fielding a similar MXT-based vehicle with the United Kingdom for the same mission purpose in Afghanistan. As part of the United Kingdom’s Tactical Support Vehicle (TSV) program, Navistar’s vehicle will be called the Husky. The company was also selected in October as one of nine finalists to compete to replace the U.K.’s light tactical wheeled vehicle fleet in the highly-competitive Operational Utility Vehicle Systems (OUVS) program. Navistar will provide MXT based vehicles for testing and trials in 2009 to replace a portion of the army’s fleet, which includes Land Rover, Wolf, Reynolds Boughton RB-44 and Pinzgauer vehicles.Navistar Defense, LLC will compete to supply the next generation of MRAPs with a vehicle based on its International MXT vehicle platform.
