Navistar Defence Debuts Its Husky Tactical Support Vehicle at U.K. Vehicle Show

Related content

Navistar Defence, LLC today debuted its International® Husky

Tactical Support Vehicle (TSV) at the U.K. Ministry of Defence vehicle

show known as DVD.

In April, the Ministry of Defence awarded the company a contract to

provide 262 Husky vehicles. Organized by the Ministry’s Defence

Equipment and Support division, DVD offers attendees the chance to see

vehicles in action on the show’s off-road course.

Specially designed to meet U.K. urgent operational requirements in

Afghanistan, the lighter and more mobile Husky is built to navigate the

rough Afghan terrain, while offering added protection from ballistics

fire, mines and roadside bombs.

The Husky, which is the medium variant for the TSV program, will be

procured in three vehicle types: patrol, ambulance and command vehicle.

Integrated with U.K. specific systems by Dytecna, the vehicle

accommodates a four-person crew and is equipped with a MaxxForce®

D 6.0 L V8 engine, Allison five-speed automatic transmission, and also

incorporates Plasan Sasa’s armouring solution.

Last month, Navistar also delivered its first two Husky prototypes,

ahead of schedule, to undergo final requirements testing before full

production begins this summer.

“The Navistar team is going after an aggressive delivery commitment to

provide our U.K. forces with the equipment they need as soon as

possible,” said Archie Massicotte, president, Navistar Defence. “Not

only will we deliver quickly to support those in theater, but Navistar

is prepared to rapidly incorporate design changes into our vehicles as

in-theater threats evolve.”

Navistar Defence is an affiliate of Navistar International Corporation

(NYSE: NAV), a holding company whose subsidiaries and affiliates produce

International® brand commercial and military trucks, MaxxForce®

brand diesel engines, IC brand school and commercial buses, the Monaco®,

Holiday Rambler®, Safari®, Beaver®,
