Leading light tactical vehicle manufacturer, AM General, participated in the International Defence Exhibition & Conference (IDEX) show held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre February 21-25, 2021, Stand 02-B10 in the U.S. Pavilion. This marked the debut of the all-new HUMVEE NXT 360, the company’s newest light tactical vehicle that offers increasing levels of protection. The company displayed the all-new HUMVEE NXT 360 ES – a rugged light tactical vehicle that is redefining survivability. Built with proprietary technology, this vehicle allows for 360-degree kinetic energy threat protection as well as blast threat protection.
The newest light tactical vehicle at the defense expo is fitted with an MSI-DSL Terrahawk Remote Weapon Station (RWS) and a Raytheon/Lockheed Martin Javelin missile launcher. Fully stabilised, the Terrahawk can be equipped with multiple sensor types for an all-weather, 24 hour capability. The onboard Fire Control System (FCS) offers full target tracking and ballistic compensation. Automated FCS cueing is available from other vehicle sensors including shot detection and laser warning receivers where equipped. Its unique design can be configured to meet individual end-user requirements such as payload, sensors and motion limits, without compromising class leading accuracy and dispersion.
Currently offering two variants (Base and ES), the NXT 360 leverages the existing HUMVEE® platform and includes additional enhancements. The ES model will offer a 6.5L V8 turbocharged engine with 250 Hp and is equipped with a long travel suspension for increased agility no matter the terrain – all optimized for exceptional transportability via land, sea, and air. Optional bolt-on armor for a higher level of kinetic energy protection; 360° kinetic energy threat protection; under-vehicle blast threat protection; blast seats, floating floor and transparent armor.
