In the case of a positive decision, the Ukrainian defense industry plan to retool HMMWV at its facilities using the kits that will come from the United States.

Help bmpd: “Modernization of HMMWV vehicles under the SCTV project is to install a special development on the vehicle of a new armored vehicle. The mass of the empty upgraded vehicle is 13000 pounds (5900 kg), and the total combat weight reaches 18500 pounds (8400 kg), despite the fact that the total combat weight of the most heavily armored standard HMMWV variants is no more than 6200 kg. To maintain the level of mobility, the upgraded SCTV car is equipped with a Cummins 6,7-liter diesel engine, derated to 275 horsepower, as well as a Allison 2500SP six-speed automatic transmission.
