Adding a Dash

  • 10-Sep-2008 04:49 EDT
The U.S. Marine Corps awarded Navistar Defense LLC a contract worth more than $752 million to produce a lighter, smaller, and more mobile variant of its International MaxxPro Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) family of vehicles. The MaxxPro Dash maintains the survivability system used on all MaxxPro MRAP variants while also allowing for greater mobility in a smaller, lighter-weight vehicle optimized for Afghanistan operations. A smaller turning radius and higher torque to weight ratio are among the improvements to mobility. MaxxPro Dash is also capable of accommodating additional uparmoring. Production of the MaxxPro Dash will begin in October at the company's West Point, MS, plant with delivery of 822 units to be completed by February 2009. The vehicle will also be equipped with the MaxxForce D engine.
