Navistar Defense To Produce Second Round Of MRAP Recovery Vehicles

Category: Defence Industry

WARRENVILLE, Ill. -- Navistar Defense, LLC today announced that it received a delivery order for 140 International® MaxxPro® Recovery vehicles with rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) nets from the U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command.

The order for $142 million also includes parts and support for the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles. Navistar received its first MaxxPro Recovery vehicle order in November 2010.

“Many mission types require MRAP survivability protection and that includes warfighters running vehicle recovery and support missions,” said Archie Massicotte, president, Navistar Defense. “To meet urgent needs, we completed delivery of the last MaxxPro Recovery vehicle order two months ahead of schedule. We are proud that these vehicles are performing well and we will work swiftly again to deliver these additional trucks.”

The MaxxPro Recovery vehicle is based on the same International® WorkStar® platform that lends its flexibility to the company’s growing family of vehicles. MRAP ballistic, mine and improvised explosive device (IED) protection aids two- to three-man crews as they retrieve damaged or mission-disabled vehicles and carry out other support missions.

The company will produce the vehicles at its West Point, Miss., facility where assembly of the recent MaxxPro Dash and Dash ambulance orders is currently being conducted. Recovery vehicles will be integrated into the running assembly line and will be delivered in October and November 2011.

“Today’s orders are within our $1.9 billion guidance for fiscal year 2011 and add to our total vehicle fleet of more than 32,000 vehicles,” said Massicotte. “Our vehicles are in use in 26 different countries, and as we move forward, we will continue to provide fleet support whenever and wherever they may be operating.”
