Light tactical vehicle
Humvee NXT 360 is a next-generation light tactical vehicle manufactured by AM General. Based on the company’s high-mobility multi-purpose wheeled vehicle (HMMWV) platform, the vehicle provides maximum commonality and ensures easy maintenance and efficient fleet sustainment.
The light tactical vehicle was unveiled at the Eurosatory 2018 Defence & Security International Exhibition held in Paris, France, in June 2018.
AM General also showcased the new Humvee NXT 360 ES rugged light tactical vehicle, a variant of the NXT 360, at the International Defence Exhibition & Conference (IDEX) event held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre in February 2021.
The NXT 360 tactical vehicle features proprietary technology, which allows for 360° kinetic energy threat protection and blast protection. It offers improved survivability as it includes under-vehicle blast protection, transparent armour, blast seats, and floating floor.
The platform has a gross vehicle weight of 6,396kg and can provide increased payload capacity of up to 7,100kg, due to suspension upgrade. A digital video camera fitted to the vehicle provides 60° to 120° field of view live feed of the outside environment, while eliminating the need for heavy transparent armour on rear passenger doors. The real-time video is transmitted to the ruggedised low-latency high-definition LED display situated inside the vehicle.
NXT 360 can be configured into two, four and six-passenger versions based on the requirement. It will also have the capacity to carry payload for personnel, and mission equipment.
The tactical armoured vehicle is available as a completely new vehicle or as an upgraded kit for integration into existing vehicle fleets. It is offered in two variants – base model and ES.
The vehicle provides greater protection, increased payload capacity, and better handling performance. It is designed to offer increased survivability, enhanced off-road mobility and stopping capability, and greater power.
The NXT 360 platform is powered by a 205hp 6.5l V8 turbocharged diesel engine. It is coupled to a four-speed electronically controlled transmission system and a two-speed transfer case.
The NXT 360 light tactical vehicle has a maximum speed of 161km/h. It will have the capability to hold 95l of fuel, offering a range of up to 402km. The vehicle can negotiate grades of 60% and side slope of 30%. With 43.7cm of ground clearance, the vehicle can cross vertical obstacles of up to 30.5cm.
The approach angle, departure angle and ramp breakover angle of the vehicle are 48°, 37° and 25° respectively. Larger tires of the platform ensure increased traction and reduced ground pressure, while providing improved ride.
The tactical vehicle can be fitted with an optional anti-lock brake system (ABS), electronic stability control (ESC), traction control, and autonomous break control interface based on customer requirement.
It has the ability to offer superior off-road mobility with improved speed, agility, and mobility on all rugged terrains in different weather conditions.
The all-terrain NXT 360 ES, the latest evolution of the Humvee family, features a long travel suspension for increased agility and manoeuvrability over difficult terrains. It can be transported easily through land, sea, and air.
The vehicle has a gross weight of 7,030kg. The ES model will be powered by a 6.5L V8 turbocharged engine which generates a power output of 250hp. It comes integrated with an electronically-controlled six-speed transmission, ABS, ESC, and traction control.
