HDT Global showcase  Storm SRTV light tactical all-terrain vehicle at Special Operations Forces Industry Conference, SOFIC 2016. The HDT Storm SRTV, developed in conjunction with Special Operations Forces, is a highly mobile light-weight tactical vehicle that facilitates mission success in austere environments and that answers the previously unmet challenges these warfighters face.

The Storm SRTV ensures mission range, provides multi-role configurations, and can be transported internally by M/HC-130P/N/J, C-130/C-130J, KC-130J and C-17 fixed- wing aircraft as well as the CH-47 and CH-53 helicopters.

To further enhance mission capability, the vehicle can drive on and drive off these aircraft without shoring and can be deployed through low velocity aerial delivery or JPADS methods.

  • Cutting brakes allow U-turns on steep hills within the length and width of the vehicle and allows high speed J-turns
  • A 20′ (6.1 m) turning diameter curb-to-curb
  • Performs at 10,000′ (3,048 m) above mean sea level with higher horsepower levels than competitive vehicles offer at sea level
  • Traverses terrain considered impassable to conventional vehicles, including vertical rock terrain
  • Rollover safety for all occupants without limiting mission operational performance
