The MXT-MV (Military Extreme Truck - Military Version) truck was introduced in 2006. Part of International Truck's Military Vehicles line, it is an International MXT extensively modified for military duty, transportable by C-130.[1]


The MXT-MVA was demonstrated to the US Army on August 14, 2006 at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds.[2]


Both variants are available with three different cab configurations: Standard, Extended Cab, and Crew Cab.


Standard, unarmored version.

MXT-MVA (Armored)[edit]

The Plasan Sasa designed [3] armored version, the MXT-MVA, has the choice of two removable armor kits, dubbed A-Kit and B-Kit, with increasing levels of protection against bullets, mines, and IEDs.[4]

Husky TSV[edit]

The Husky is a variant of the MXT-MVA modified to satisfy the UK MoD's Tactical Support Vehicles (TSV) requirements for the British Army.[5]


Navistar built its rejected M-ATV candidate sharing some powertrain & suspension components with the MXT, but with a completely unique chassis. This protection system was designed by Navistar rather than their normal MXT and MRAP partner, Plasan.[6][7]
