AM General and international defence contractor IDV have reached a partnership to pursue the US Army’s Common Tactical Truck (CTT) programme.

The team has submitted a formal bid in response to the programme’s Request for Prototype Proposal (RPP).

The CTT programme aims to find a replacement for the Army’s Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles.

The service also seeks to explore the potential use of modified commercial off-the-shelf solutions for a new CTT fleet.

The IDV and AM General team has proposed to develop CTT prototypes, whose architecture will be based on a new, highly modular range of militarised trucks launched by IDV.

AM General president and CEO Jim Cannon said: “I’m excited about our collaboration with IDV because it marries international business with our deep experience in supporting the US military. Together, we are a formidable force, ready to provide the best solution for CTT. IDV is building this capability for our allies and partners today!”

IDV has more than 85 years of experience in developing and producing various military-specific logistic, protected, and armoured vehicles.

To meet the Army’s CTT requirements, AM General will use IDV’s vehicles that are well positioned and available commercially.

The partners will also leverage those vehicles that feature automotive improvements, drive by wire, fuel efficiency, commonality with industry, mission roles, force protection, sustainability, survivability, interoperability, and other advanced capabilities and technologies.

IDV CEO Claudio Catalano said: “Together with AM General, we will be able to deliver innovative automotive and protection solutions to meet the requirements and needs of the US Army.

“The solutions developed are a concrete proof of the commitment and the proactive approach that IDV and AM General have developed thanks to this strategic partnership.”
