Navy Orders 38 Heavy Truck Tractors

October 11, 2010

WASHINGTON - The Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) awarded $18.9 million to Navistar Defense, LLC for 38 International 5000-MV heavy truck tractors (HTTs). The contract with the U.S. Navy includes three option periods for additional vehicle orders, according to a release from Navistar.

The 5000-MV HTT unit will support Navy Seabee transportation needs. The vehicles incorporate a variety of armoring solutions derived from the International MaxxPro Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle. Units include a manual 18-speed transmission and a MaxxForce D 13L engine.

Similar 5000-MV HTT variants were used by the U.S. Army during two Persian Gulf Wars to transport tanks across the Northern Saudi Arabian Desert. Nearly 600 HTT units are currently in service with KBR and the Iraqi Ministry of Defense to support security and rebuilding efforts.

Production of HTT vehicles will begin in early 2012. Spare parts and training services are included in the contract.
