Textron Marine & Land Systems, Granite Tactical Vehicles to Showcase HMMWV Recap System at AUSA Winter

Category: Exhibitions

NEW ORLEANS and MOUNT AIRY, N.C. -- Textron Marine & Land Systems, an operating unit of Textron Systems, a Textron Inc. company, and Granite Tactical Vehicles Inc. announced today that its Survivable Combat Tactical Vehicle (SCTV) system will be shown in outdoor Booth 3328 at the Association of the U.S. Army (AUSA) Winter Symposium.

The SCTV system is being offered by the Textron/Granite team as the solution to the U.S. Army's proposed High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) recapitalization program. SCTV is a complete vehicle system designed for seamless integration with the HMMWV chassis to handle the asymmetric battlefield with advanced technologies and features that provide increased mobility, survivability and performance for all HMMWV variants. The Textron/Granite team has incorporated rugged, durable, tested components, including a blast protected crew compartment, or capsule, with total system integration.

"The SCTV is more than a modernization of the HMMWV, it is revolutionizing the HMMWV," said Granite Tactical Vehicles President Chris Berman. "The protection upgrades hung on the HMMWV through the years have seriously compromised the performance of the vehicle. It was never intended to handle the weight it is being required to carry or provide protection levels required on today's battlefield. Our SCTV gives soldiers and Marines the performance and protection they need in the near-term."

The SCTV has undergone independent and U.S. Marine Corps blast and mobility testing. The independent blast testing confirms the vehicle is capable of protection levels equal to Mine Resistant Ambush Protection (MRAP) level 1 specifications. While providing unparalleled protection, the SCTV's mobility and performance exceed currently fielded HMMWVs by reducing overall weight and integrating upgraded suspension and engine technology.

"Today's operational tempo and combat challenges demand greater tactical mobility and survivability of the HMMWV," said Textron Marine & Land Systems Senior Vice President and General Manager Tom Walmsley. "With the cost and operational effectiveness of our SCTV, combined with our track record of on-time deliveries and low-risk performance, the Textron/Granite team is ready to bring the HMMWV fleet into the future."
