Navistar Defense Displays Military Vehicles for Future South African Truck Requirement

CAPE TOWN, South Africa -- Navistar Defense, LLC today showcased its International® MXT™ and Navistar-Tatra ATX6 vehicles at the Africa Aerospace and Defence exhibition. The company plans to submit variations of these vehicles to compete for the future South African military logistic truck requirement.

“We continue to diversify our product portfolio to meet the needs of allied armed forces all over the world,” said Archie Massicotte, president, Navistar Defense. “Our MXT vehicle and the Navistar-Tatra ATX6 provide flexible platforms that can meet the future military needs of South Africa while also allowing for additional enhancements as mission needs evolve. In addition, the ATX family of vehicles provides solutions in 4x4, 6x6 and 8x8 configurations. ”

Today, the MXT vehicle is in operation in Afghanistan supporting the British Army. The vehicle has demonstrated exceptional survivability and off road performance in all environmental conditions. The vehicle utilizes Navistar’s manufacturing and engineering expertise along with survivability solutions developed by Israel’s Plasan Sasa.

The jointly-produced ATX6 is part of a family of vehicles offered by Navistar and Tatra, a.s. The ATX6 combines Navistar engine technology and other vehicle components with Tatra’s proven backbone-tube chassis design and independent suspension system. Tatra’s chassis concept uses swinging half-axles for world class tactical vehicle mobility and added resistance against chassis wear and tear.

Navistar International Corporation is a holding company whose subsidiaries and affiliates produce International® brand commercial and military trucks, MaxxForce® brand diesel engines, IC Bus™ brand school and commercial buses, Monaco® RV brands of recreational vehicles, and Workhorse® brand chassis for motor homes and step vans. It also is a private-label designer and manufacturer of diesel engines for the pickup truck, van and SUV markets. The company also provides truck and diesel engine service parts.
