Navistar International’s military vehicle division will install specially designed armored cabs on trucks that will be used by Afghan Security Forces.

Under the $23 million contract, Navistar will replace the commercial cabs on the medium-tactical vehicles with the armored units. The armor will protect occupants from ballistic and blast threats.

These and other upgrades will help improve survivability during route clearance missions with mine roller applications.

The U.S. Army submitted the order. The work will be done at the Navistar Defense facility in West Point, Miss. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in April.

Since 2004, Navistar has provided nearly 9,000 MTVs to Afghan forces. There are another 14,000 Navistar MTVs in service with military units around the world, Navistar said.
