Force Protection, General Dynamics team up for M-ATV

  • 19-Feb-2009 05:26 EST
Force Protection Inc. and General Dynamics Land Systems Inc. have submitted the Cheetah, a lightweight armored tactical vehicle developed by Force Protection that meets or exceeds U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM) threshold requirements for crew protection, mobility, and weight in response to the U.S. Army's Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) All Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV) solicitation. TACOM’s requirements for an M-ATV include MRAP threshold survivability, off-road mobility, and lighter weight than existing MRAPs. Force Protection’s Cheetah vehicle combines the protective qualities of Force Protection’s Cougar MRAP, delivering exceptional survivability, while allowing for the mobility necessary to navigate difficult terrain, including a very low center of gravity to minimize rollover potential. Force Protection is commencing low-rate production at Force Protection’s Ladson, SC, plant.
