The U.S. Army recently awarded Navistar Defense an $18.8 million foreign military sales contract to provide 115 International 7000-MV Medium Tactical Vehicles to Iraq.

Navistar Defense MTVs are based on the multipurpose International WorkStar severe-duty platform designed for both on- and off-road operation. The vehicle also provides the platform for the company’s MaxxPro Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle.

The equipment will be used by Iraqi security forces in the Ministry of Interior and Ministry of Defense. Navistar Defense’s dealer in Iraq, Hama, provides parts and service support for Navistar vehicles in the region.

The vehicles will be built at Navistar Defense’s West Point, Mississippi, assembly plant and delivery is expected to be completed in January 2018.

"Since 2004, Navistar Defense has delivered nearly 7,000 trucks and buses to Iraq through foreign military sales contracts," said Kevin Thomas, president of Navistar Defense. "As a proven partner, we're proud to supply the Iraq Army with a highly versatile and easy-to-maintain 7000-series tactical military support truck that offers greater efficiencies in support, spare parts, training, and operations."
