Nav­is­tar’s Spe­cial Op­er­a­tions Tac­ti­cal Ve­hi­cle makes in­ter­na­tional de­but

SP's MAI - - SHOW REPORT -

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.
