Navistar has won a $198 million 160 Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle, spare and repair parts, and training delivery contract to Pakistan.

Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) announced the approval of 160 Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles, spare and repair parts, and training to Pakistan at an estimated cost of $198 million.

The contract approved by the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) includes 160 Navistar Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles (110 MaxxPro Dash DXM, 30 MaxxPro Base DXM, 10 MaxxPro Dash DXM Ambulances, and 10 MaxxPro Recovery Vehicles with protection kits), spare and repair parts, support and test equipment, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and equipment training, engineering, technical and logistics support services, and other related elements of logistical and program support.

Pakistan, which currently possesses MRAPS, has successfully demonstrated the ability to operate and maintain the vehicles in counterinsurgency and counterterrorism operations, and will have no difficulty absorbing these additional vehicles into its armed forces.
