Navistar to provide MTVs to ANSF

10th September 2015 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Navistar Defense has been awarded a $369 million contract by the US Army Contracting Command to provide 2,293 Medium Tactical Vehicles (MTVs) to build upon the Afghanistan National Security Force's (ANSF) MTV Fleet, the company announced on 9 September. 

The company will provide water and fuel tankers, general troop transport vehicles, wreckers, ammunition trucks, and trucks with armoured cabs. The fleet will be based on the International WorkStar/7000-MV severe service vocational truck platform.

Navistar Defense will start production immediately and begin the deliveries in January 2016. Deliveries are expected to conclude in 2019. 

Kevin Thomas, president, Navistar Defense, said: ‘We are honoured to continue supporting the efforts of the ANSF's missions to provide security and rebuilding in their country. We have been supporting ANSF since 2005 and have provided more than 9,000 medium-duty vehicles to the Afghan forces during that time.’
