Specific military missions require specific functionality from MRAP All-Terrain Vehicles (M-ATV) and each one of Oshkosh Defense’s new variants is equipped to handle a different challenge.
Oshkosh recently unveiled the new line to military leaders and dignitaries from around the world at Eurosatory 2014 in Paris. The company has expanded its combat-proven M-ATV Family of Vehicles to serve a spectrum of mission requirements and needs for armed forces around the world.
The global M-ATV Family of Vehicles includes two multi-mission models – the M-ATV Standard and M-ATV Extended – with many variants.
The M-ATV Standard model provides response and support capabilities for a range of offensive and defensive missions in off-road environments.
The M-ATV Extended model delivers increased capacity for additional troops and equipment to support a wider assortment of mission profiles, such as mounted infantry support, explosive ordnance support and command-and-control.
Oshkosh’s M-ATV family of vehicles includes:
- M-ATV Standard Base (SXB)
- M-ATV Standard Upgrade (SXU)
- M-ATV Standard Special Forces (SXF)
- M-ATV Extended Intervention (EXI)
- M-ATV Extended Engineer (EXE)
- M-ATV Extended Command (EXC)
All Oshkosh M-ATVs deliver the industry’s highest level of off-road performance and feature common components, such as the Oshkosh TAK-4 independent suspension and integrated crew protection systems. The M-ATV platform meets a wide range of protection, performance, payload and transportability requirements for peacekeeping, internal security, border security, special operations, counterinsurgency and conventional military operations.
