Mack Defense has partnered with JWF Defense Systems to assemble the Lakota 6×6 vehicle system.

Powered by a US-built engine, the Lakota can travel at top speed of 62mph with a range of up to 1,400 miles.

The vehicle is available in five variants, and accommodate nearly 12 personnel.

It provides a fully armoured hull and its lighter weight allows for improved manoeuvrability and off-road mobility..

Designed to meet the needs of a variety of missions, the vehicle’s capabilities were tested in multiple locations throughout the US including California, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Michigan.

Mack Defense president Ryan Werling said: "The Lakota 6×6 delivers the capabilities of an 8×8, but at a fraction of the cost.

The partnership will also see the companies producing the vehicle’s armoured hull.

Werling further added: "We look forward to working with JWF Defense Systems on the assembly of these vehicle solutions along with production of their armoured hulls.
