Navistar Defense has been awarded an $18.8 million foreign military sales contract by the US Army to provide 115 International 7000-MV Medium Tactical Vehicles (MTV) to Iraq, the company announced on 13 June.

The MTV is based on the multipurpose International WorkStar platform designed for both on- and off-road operation and is part of the company’s family of MaxxPro Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles.

The equipment will be used by Iraqi Ministry of Defence and Ministry of Interior security forces. Delivery is expected to be completed in January 2018, and the vehicles will be supported by Navistar representative in Iraq, Hama.

Kevin Thomas, president of Navistar Defense, said: ‘Since 2004, Navistar Defense has delivered nearly 7,000 trucks and buses to Iraq through foreign military sales contracts.

'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.’
