The U.S. Army recently awarded Navistar Defense, LLC a foreign military sales contract valued at $18.8 million to provide 115 International® 7000-MV Medium Tactical Vehicles (MTV) to Iraq.

"As a proven partner, we're proud to supply the Iraq Army with a highly versatile and easy-to-maintain 7000-series tactical military support truck that offers greater efficiencies in support, spare parts, training, and operations."
The majority of the work will take place at the company's West Point, Mississippi assembly plant. Delivery is planned to be completed in January 2018.
