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

Under the contract, Navistar Defense will provide general troop transport vehicles, water and fuel tankers, ammunition trucks, and wreckers as well as a number of trucks with armored cabs. This fleet is based on the International® WorkStar®/7000-MV severe service vocational truck platform. 

Production of the MTVs for ANSF will occur at Navistar's assembly plants located in Springfield, Ohio and West Point, Mississippi.

The Medium Tactical Vehicles feature the DXM independent suspension for an even smoother ride no matter the type of the terrain. The DXM can also accommodate a variety of survivability and armouring solutions derived from MaxxPro MRAP vehicles.
