Variants[edit | edit source]

MXT-MV[edit | edit source]

Standard, unarmored version.

MXT-MVA (Armored)[edit | edit source]

The Plasan Sasa designed [2] armored version, the MXT-MVA, has the choice of two removable armor kits, dubbed A-Kit and B-Kit, with increasing levels of protection against bullets, mines, and IEDs.[3]

Husky TSV[edit | edit source]

The Husky is a variant of the MXT-MVA modified to satisfy the UK MoD's Tactical Support Vehicles (TSV) requirements for the British Army.[4]

M-ATV[edit | edit source]

Navistar built its rejected M-ATV candidate sharing some powertrain & suspension components with the MXT, but with a completely unique chassis. This protection system was designed by Navistar rather than their normal MXT and MRAP partner, Plasan.[5][6]

Operators[edit | edit source]

  • The MXT-MVA was demonstrated to the US Army on August 14, 2006 at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds.[7]
  • The Navistar MXT-MVA is the UK's Husky Tactical Support Vehicle (Medium). A contract for 351 (262+89) vehicles has been signed.[8]
