The military version of the Havoc commercial all-terrain vehicle Textron Systems for the first time presented at the AUSA 2018 in Washington, DC. At the time of the demonstration, the vehicle was called Havoc-M and was at an early stage of development.

The model of the vehicle presented at the exhibition was equipped with communication systems and a weapon station, but in other versions there may be changes, such as an improved suspension and reconfigured cargo hold.

Planned characteristics of the Havoc-M include diesel, gasoline and hybrid powertrain options, options with two or four seats, independent two-lever four-wheel suspension and a flexible, customizable cargo area, configured for various missions. A key aspect of the platform will be its proven operation as a civilian and commercial vehicle, as well as the availability of a supply chain and production base.

The Havoc platform has a wheelbase of 2.1 m, a length of 3.2 m, and the modern versions have a roof height of almost 2 m. The weight of the vehicle depends on the variant, but is about 800 kg, although it is likely to be increased in Havoc-M in depending on the weight of the weapon station and additional equipment.

The vehicle has a width of 1.62 m and a ground clearance of 33 cm. The current versions has a payload of up to 544 kg, cargo of 270 kg and can pull a trailer weighing up to 907 kg.

The vehicle has hydraulic disc brakes on all wheels with 22.9 cm rotors and two-piston calipers, and the front and rear suspension provide free running up to 32 cm.
