Iveco Defence Vehicles at Eurosatory 2016

Eurosatory 2016 provides Iveco Defence Vehicles, a brand of CNH Industrial, with the opportunity to acquaint both existing customers and other visitors with the most recent developments in its product range and highlight its latest commercial successes.

On display is the platform developed in cooperation with BAE Systems for the ACV 1.1 programme, downselected by the USMC for the EMD phase in November 2015: The SUPERAV. Furthermore, the LMV 2 Light Multirole Vehicle, for the first time on display, provides better performance, greater reliability, and increased crew comfort. The new version, implemented with a new 220hp engine, presents an upgraded driveline capable of managing more power, and a new air filtration system. The new Iveco Defence Vehicles’ 70.20 WM, on display in crew cab and van version, is a purpose built military vehicle, which also benefits from the use of many commercial components. Rugged and highly mobile, it has been developed to meet the demanding requirements of military users and to be used in urban contexts for public order and internal security operations.

Iveco Defence Vehicles’ High Mobility range of trucks is designed to have the protection and mobility to meet demanding specialist military logistic applications. The High Mobility 8x8 is displayed in two versions: The High Mobility 8x8 configured for the French Army (M320.45WM), on display as part of the Porteur Polyvalent Terrestre (PPT) Programme launched in 2010 to provide the French land forces with a fleet of modern logistic vehicles and awarded to Iveco Defence Vehicles and its partner Soframe, a subsidiary of the Alsatian Lohr Group; and the High Mobility 8x8 Tractor (M1250.70T WM). Equipped with a FPT Industrial Cursor 16 engine and an upgraded gearbox, this vehicle completes Iveco Defence Vehicles’ range of High Mobility Trucks and represents a vehicle solution that, in addition to power, offers mobility, manoeuvrability and reliability. The new 680 HP evolution is displayed for the first time at Eurosatory.

The new TRAKKER on display benefits from Euro 6 technology and represents the latest evolution of the off-road TRAKKER range. The vehicle is equipped with a FPT Industrial Cursor engine with “HIeSCR” emissions management technology. This delivers optimised combustion and post-combustion systems to retain Iveco’s fuel economy, combined with reduced environmental impact.
