The TSV Husky units are designed to navigate rough terrain, while offering added protection from ballistics fire, mines, and improvised explosive devices.
The U.K. Ministry of Defence finalized a deal with Navistar Defense LLC for the purchase of 262 tactical wheeled vehicles and parts and support for an estimated value of $180 million. The International MXT-based units were procured through the U.K.’s Tactical Support Vehicle (TSV) program and are designated Husky. Navistar is responsible for delivering a fully integrated, mission-ready vehicle and has contracted U.K.-based Dytecna to integrate TSV Husky units with U.K.-specific communications and other systems. The company is also teamed with Plasan, which will provide the survivability solution for the vehicle. Assembly of the TSV Husky units will occur at the company’s West Point, MS, assembly plant. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in the second half of the 2009 calendar year.
