Three additional test versions of the mine-resistant ambush-protected all-terrain Cheetah vehicles (M-ATV) have been delivered to the US Army for continued testing as part of the Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command’s M-ATV programme.

The vehicles were produced by Force Dynamics, a joint venture between Force Protection and General Dynamics Land Systems.

As well as a request for a lighter-weight mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) vehicle with better mobility the US Army also requested a C4ISR system architecture that would enable rapid installation of various government furnished equipment (GFE) post delivery.

This C4ISR capability significantly increases the M-ATV operational flexibility, enabling the M-ATVs to be rapidly configured in the field for various mission profiles.

Force Dynamics executive vice president and managing director Damon Walsh said that the collaboration had resulted in a lightweight, highly mobile and survivable vehicle platform with a completely integrated C4ISR plug-and-play system.

“With this approach we can provide a better, more reliable system and ultimately better value for the war fighter by getting the vehicle into operations faster,” Walsh said.
