Bids were solicited via the internet with three received. Work locations and funding will be determined with each order, with an estimated completion date of Nov. 25, 2022. U.S. Army Contracting Command, Warren, Michigan, is the contracting activity (W56HZV-20-D-0016).

The versatile International 7000-MV platform features a recovery vehicle that can be used for multiple purposes. The 7000-MV Recovery Vehicle off-road truck is equipped with a crane for vehicle recovery and lifting of heavy equipment.

The International 7000-MV is powered by the same heavy-duty turbocharged diesel engine that’s made a name tackling gravel pits, landfills and rugged construction sites. Plus, it offers up to a 50-degree wheel cut for a tighter turning radius. A proven performer in the commercial and military world, the 7000-MV is a hard-working model of efficiency that’s being used in Iraq and Afghanistan today as a general troop transporter; wrecker; water tanker; petroleum, oil and lubricant vehicle; and hazardous material truck.
