12:00 AM, October 23, 2012
Navistar Defense, LLC will showcase three tactical vehicles during the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting. The Special Operations Tactical Vehicle for the Ground Mobility Vehicle (GMV) 1.1 competition, the Indigen Armor Non-Standard Tactical Truck (NSTT) and the International MaxxPro Recovery Vehicle - Performance Kit (MRV-PK) demonstrate the latest in vehicle technology. The Special Operations Tactical Vehicle and the NSTT are both designed to incorporate scalable armor packages to meet multiple threat levels encountered by special operators. The two vehicles share more than 60 percent vehicle commonality and are engineered to carry large payloads at off-road racing speeds in the roughest of mission terrain. Each vehicle can be integrated with a full government furnished Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) suite. “The Special Operations Tactical Vehicle and the NSTT share similar vehicle capabilities to meet the rigors and unique requirements of special operators,” said Archie Massicotte, president, Navistar Defense. “We worked closely with Indigen Armor on the design of our Special Operations Tactical Vehicle and it is a solid vehicle entry for the Special Operations Command GMV 1.1 competition”. The vehicle capabilities of the MRV-PK provide noticeably improved vehicle performance including an increase in horsepower and enhanced towing capability to support missions in Afghanistan. The kit can be retrofitted onto existing MaxxPro Recovery Vehicles and improves engine power by 20 percent to increase grade ability and acceleration.
