Navistar Defense Showcases Best In Light Tactical Vehicles At SOFIC

Category: Exhibitions

Tampa, Fla. -- Navistar Defense, LLC and its partner, Defense Venture Group Ltd., are demonstrating the latest in light tactical vehicles this week at the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC). The International® Special Operations Tactical Vehicle (SOTV) for the Ground Mobility Vehicle (GMV) 1.1 competition and Indigen Armor’s four door, four wheel drive, armored pick-up truck, the Non-Standard Tactical Truck (NSTT), will both be on display.

The SOTV was designed with speed and mission-readiness in mind—fully equipped to roll off a MH/CH-47 in less than 60 seconds while meeting the maximum payload requirements across a spectrum of armored and unarmored configurations. The SOTV offers exceptional mobility, transportability and modularity.

“The 80 percent commonality shared between our SOTV and Indigen’s NSTT allows SOCOM to meet two major requirements with one platform, drastically reducing their program and system investment for provisioning, spare parts and logistics support,” said Pat MacArevey, vice president government business, Navistar Defense.

The SOTV and the NSTT are both designed to incorporate scalable armor packages to meet multiple threat levels encountered by special operators. The two vehicles 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.

“We designed our SOTV to easily grow, adapt and change,” MacArevey added. “The vehicle’s high payload, excess engine and electrical capacity provide room for capability improvements in armor, weapons and C4ISR technology.”
