Norway receives first Extenda vehicle

12th June 2018 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Supacat has delivered the first production High Mobility Transporter (HMT) Extenda vehicle to the Norwegian armed forces, the company announced on 7 June, 2018.

Supacat is delivering the new fleet of high mobility vehicles under a £23 million contract signed in May 2015. The first pre-series vehicle was delivered in early 2017, and full fleet delivery will take place throughout 2018 and 2019.

The HMT Extenda is convertible to a 4×4 or a 6×6 configuration by inserting or removing a self-contained third axle unit to meet different operational requirements. The vehicle can be supplied with optional mine blast and ballistic protection kits and with a variety of mission hampers, weapons, communications, ISTAR and force protection equipment to suit a wide range of operational roles.

Supacat is also under contract to deliver a comprehensive through-life support package.  

Nick Ames, chief executive of SC Group, of which Supacat is a part, said: ‘This project milestone is a great achievement for Supacat and for our Norwegian customer. I am proud of what the team has achieved in delivering a fantastic product and we are looking forward to following this first production delivery with the rest of the order.’
