The US Army has awarded Navistar Defense a foreign military sales contract, valued at $21.97 million (€20.4 million), for 134 Medium Tactical Vehicles (MTV), the company announced on 19 March.
The delivery orders call for the company to deliver 4x4 cargo vehicles, 6x6 general transport trucks (GTT), 6x6 GTT vehicles with material handling equipment and 6x6 30-ton wreckers, plus spare parts and technical data.
“Providing vehicles to allied forces is an important part of our strategy to grow our business. Since 2004, we’ve delivered more than 7,000 military vehicles to the Iraqi Ministry of Interior and Ministry of Defense. This versatile and cost-effective platform, which shares commonality with their existing fleet, will support a variety of mission requirements,” commented CEO, Ted Wright.
