Navistar’s Special Operations Tactical Vehicle makes international debut
Navistar Defense showcased its Special Operations Tactical Vehicle for the first time outside of the United States at Eurosatory. The vehicle was developed to be an overt tactical vehicle that can be transportable in a CH-47 helicopter.
The Special Operations Tactical Vehicle chassis, suspension, powertrain and armoured occupant safety cell were engineered specifically to carry large payloads across rough landscapes and the scalable armour packages meet multiple threat levels. The vehicle can be integrated with a full government furnished command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) suite.
“We always strive to leverage our existing platforms to provide affordable and integrated solutions for our Allied Armed Forces,” said Archie Massicotte, president, Navistar Defense. “The Special Operations Tactical Vehicle adds to our portfolio and provides high vehicle mobility to aid the mission needs of special operators.”
The company also displayed the Saratoga and the MXT Armoured Personnel Carrier for special operations. The company launched the Saratoga in October 2011 to meet a gap in the light tactical vehicle market and the MXT is a proven platform currently in operation in Afghanistan.
