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.
