US Army announces tender for buggy

The American infantry will soon receive ultralight vehicles (buggies). As transmits "Warspot" citing the portal defense-blog.com, on March 1, the US Army announced a tender for Infantry Squad Vehicles (ISV) for the supply of ultralight vehicles.


The US Army has announced a tender for the supply of ultralight cars (buggies). It is specified that the tender is fleeting, the winner will be determined already in June this year. The company that won the competition will have to deliver 1070 ultra-light vehicles to the U.S. Army within three years. In addition, under the terms of the tender, the contract can be expanded with a further increase in the volume and terms of the purchase.

The tender says that the car submitted to the competition must transport up to 9 armed servicemen on roads and rough terrain. At the same time, the buggy should be light enough and compact to be transported on the external suspension of the UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter and fit in the CH-47 Chinook helicopter. Nothing is said about the armament of cars, apparently the American army itself will deal with this issue.

US Army Command says the ISVs must provide enhanced tactical mobility for infantry combat groups. The main purpose is to quickly move around the battlefield, including the ability to perform combat missions at medium distances.

      In our time, UAZ and TPK played a similar role.

        UAZ had normal doors, a tent could be installed and there was some kind of stove. All protected from wind and rainfall.

          I do not think that there was an opportunity to mess with the installation and removal of the tent.

            From an airplane right into battle, or what? This is an extreme situation, not the case that often could be.

              This was the main method of their combat use.

              By the way, what about the Americans - there is no need to confuse, this is not "everyday transport", this is an addition to the Oshkosh JLTV or BTR "Stryker" in case of airborne operations.

    Well, I don’t know ... In the photo, the gravitap does not look very “super light”.
    In this case, the buggy should be enough lightweight and compact

    "Enough" - the concept is enough ( lol ) extensible, which we observe.

        It is clear that everything is relative, but the practical weight with all the attendants does not disappear from this. What am I talking about? Like, say, do not call the Panther a medium tank, it will not fall into the dirt less from this.

      For them it is as natural as breathing. All the assurances of the White House on the protection of the world, there are pronounced like Hochma.
