The Sisu A2045 HMTV (High Mobility Terrain Vehicle) is a Finnish standard medium tactical truck, intended to replace older SISU A45 "Proto" light trucks in the Finnish Defence Forces. In spoken language Sisu A2045 is called the MAN-Sisu referring to the engine, axles and other elementary parts delivered by the German lorry manufacturer MAN Nutzfahzeuge,[5] officially MAN SE, former MAN AG. For the personal transportation on the installed seats, twelve persons can travel outside the driver's cabin. The lorry is classified by its weight as a middle off-road logistic vehicle.

The trucks are used for general logistics and conscript training, as well as for towing artillery pieces, anti-aircraft weapons and command modules.

Sisu A2045 is the successor of Sisu A-45, Sisu AH-45 and Sisu KB-45. The A2540 was introduced at the Security and Defence 2008 exhibition in Lahti, Finland.[6]

Operators[edit]

 Finland: The Finnish Defence Forces has ordered 232 4×4 vehicles for delivery 2009-2010. It has also an option for an additional 240 vehicles to be bought after 2010.
