AM General has unveiled the latest version of its 4×4 light tactical vehicle at Eurosatory 2018 exhibition, in Parish.

AM General took the opportunity at the Eurosatory to showcase its next-generation light tactical vehicle, called the NXT 360.

“Eurosatory is a great venue that will allow our global customers to get a first look at this versatile truck that can enhance their light tactical wheeled fleet in a timely and cost-efficient manner,” said Andy Hove, AM General President and CEO.

The company said the tactical vehicle will have increased survivability, off-road mobility and payload capacity. The vehicle includes increased kinetic energy threat protection and blast protection for the wheels, said Regis Luther, company vice president for engineering. AM General also added blast seats and blast mats and boosted the transparent armor to a B7 ballistic protection level.

Much like many of the unique product variants that are offered by AM General, the NXT 360 can be delivered as complete new vehicle that can be incorporated into new missions, or as an upgrade kit that can be integrated into existing vehicle fleets to gain the same advanced capabilities.

According to the company, the new vehicle is powered by a P400 turbocharged engine, with 250 horsepower, multi-fuel capability and 6-speed transmission, he said. Those improvements have helped to increase the vehicle’s fuel economy and raise the top speed, offering a smoother gear transition and reducing the interior noise level, he noted.
