Navistar Defense presented a lightweight tactical vehicle as part of the Annual Meeting and the United States Army Association Symposium (AUSA). Such a car will become an intermediate in the modernization programs of the developed and improved highly maneuverable multi-purpose wheeled vehicle (HMMWV), the upgraded advanced vehicle (MECV) and the future combined light tactical vehicle (JLTV).

The 10-ton car has a payload of 3,2 tons, including 4-passengers, as well as an arrow placed in an armored and explosion-proof cabin.

This vehicle has been developed for over a year and, having already undergone intensive testing in more than 25 thousands of miles (approx. 46000 km), is ready for production.

The Saratoga is equipped with a MaxxForce D8L VN 6.0 microlander diesel engine, an automatic differential lock with increased internal friction, an Allison 2100 SP 6-SP automatic transmission (Spain) and an independent air suspension for additional control.

Navistar has developed and tested its own solution to the geometry of the body, ensuring the survivability of the car. Navistar offers a car with a ballistic protection against small weaponsmin, explosions of IEDs and other possible threats. Armored protection is performed by metal or ceramic armor in combination with protection designed to withstand extreme loads without loss of maneuverability, power, torque or payload capabilities. The floor is raised to the highest possible height, which contributes to effective protection against explosions. Thus, the height of the car is 83 inches (1860 mm). To meet the height requirements for naval vessels fleet when loading goods, the car uses suspension compression. This reduces the overall height by 7 inches to 76 ”, which corresponds to the size of naval transport vessels. The gross vehicle weight is 9,979 tons (22 pounds) with a maximum payload of 000 tons (3,265 pounds). Its length is 7200 m (5,72 ”), the wheelbase is 222 m (4,01”).

    Light car weighing 10 tons? The tiger weighs 7600 kg

    The 5 BT-1934 tank weighed 11 tons.

    Well, and how does it differ from the armored Hammer?

      Do you knowingly write to the UAZ account? So far no one has guessed to use the UAZ as a battlefield machine. And indeed the whole idea with some kind of armored jeeps on the war is idiocy.

    What should they do? For me, an APC is always better.

      So it is - the BTR is a much more functional machine. Moreover, the size and combat weight of all these armored cars are approaching the same performance as armored personnel carriers. And it’s somehow puzzling, vertically located and not closing, with the armor of the glass of these cars.

    I remembered that the MO refused to buy UAZs with the goal of developing new cars .... and why not people like this

      In general, UAZ is a car in which the commander of a unit or formation moves in peacetime. In modern conditions, an hour after receiving a signal to bring to higher degrees of combat readiness, the commander changes to his commander’s armored personnel carrier or infantry fighting vehicle and he no longer needs an UAZ. So why sculpt a 10-ton armored car for peacetime? What the ?

    remember the Saxons make a car like a rally bugs but armored
    all cheers patriots shouted that garbage ... they say the war is not a rally ........ they are looking for try
    and then half. dumb .. mol uzik can not help but buy an elevator to move it another dvigun ...
    they think flatly (as if they weren’t a masterpiece in their view) they have a variety of choices and they are ????
    tiger ... and its modifications are more bold no one thinks

    The agrigate is so interesting, so controversial ...
    Huge windshields for an armored car .. review is certainly good, but the glasses are one hell flat, and the target is very convenient: if they do not penetrate, the visibility can still fall to zero ... and again these damn hinged windows on the sides ...
    A mass of 10 tons with a maximum load - will it not sink in the mud? .. Or are they planning to drive it only over stones and deserts?
