AM General, IDV Join Forces for Army Common Tactical Truck Program Bid

1 min read

The tandem of AM General and defense contractor Iveco Defence Vehicle has made a bid in response to a request for prototype proposal as part of a U.S. Army initiative aimed at replacing heavy and medium military vehicles.

In pursuit of the Army’s Common Tactical Truck program, the companies will work on a prototype, whose architecture will be based on IDV’s militarized High Mobility Range vehicles, AM General said Monday.

The trucks span from 4×4 to 10×10 and are equipped with a variety of cabin types that could aid in logistical footprint reduction, AM General said Monday.

AM General will leverage IDV’s commercially available vehicles, including those armed with drive-by-wire and fuel efficiency capabilities to meet the program’s requirements.

Through the CTT program, the Army aims to obtain an architecture for the replacement of its family of heavy and medium tactical fleets.

“I’m excited about our collaboration with IDV because it marries international business with our deep experience in supporting the US Military,” said Jim Cannon, AM General president and CEO.
