Military Power: Indigen Armor's NSTT

A Tactical Truck For Overt and Covert Operations

Jason ThompsonOct 1, 2010
Indigen Armor designed the Non-Standard Tactical Truck (NSTT) from the ground up specifically for special forces negotiating in urban, desert, woodland, jungle, mountainous, and arctic terrains. The NSTT can be outfitted with different armor packages for overt or covert missions (this particular setup looks like it was styled after a short-course off-road-racing Nissan truck). The NSTT is also available with a low-profile rollbar and weapons mounts for further versatility. This four-wheel-drive armored vehicle is said to fit in the MH-47 helicopter and run on JP-8 fuel. The NSTT has a 325hp International VT365 (the basis of the 6.0L Ford Power Stroke), the transmission is an Allison 1000, and the undercarriage is reported to be capable of withstanding an M-67 grenade.
