The Navistar-Tatra team, which has built its first trucks, will combine Tatra’s vehicle designs and tactical chassis technology with Navistar’s military vehicle expertise and its global parts and support network. Shown is the team's 6x6 variant.

Navistar Defense, LLC and Tatra, a.s.—a Czech Republic-based manufacturer of heavy-duty, all-wheel-drive, off-highway trucks and chassis cabs—will team for the upcoming Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) Standard Military Pattern (SMP) vehicle program. As part of the Medium Support Vehicle System (MSVS) program, SMP will replace Canada’s Medium Logistics truck fleet. The Navistar-Tatra team, which has been working together for the past several months and has built its first trucks, will combine Tatra’s vehicle designs and tactical chassis technology with Navistar’s military vehicle expertise and its global parts and support network for vehicle support. The team is focused on creating local sustainment of its vehicles. Navistar will serve as the prime contractor for the SMP program. The company is currently providing Military Commercial off the Shelf vehicles to the Canadian DND as part of the MSVS program. Its Canadian dealerships provide service support for these vehicles.
