Are you looking for the ultimate bug-out vehicle? Canadians recently got the chance to do a little survivor-vehicle shopping at CANSEC, Canada's largest defense and security trade show. There, Navistar Defence Canada, Inc. recently displayed its MaxxPro Recovery Vehicle. The MRV is Navistar's state-of-the-art commercial towing and recovery vehicle. It pairs the company's MaxxPro vehicle with heavy-duty recovery equipment that's commercially available, a combination that offers high capability on the battleground. At the show, the company also had a multimedia presentation and display of Navistar's Military Commercial off the Shelf (MILCOTS) armored cab.
The MRV is a fully off-road-capable vehicle, and was designed to excel in survivability, recovery, mobility, and power, so whether you're avoiding zombies or just want prepare for a natural disaster, you'll be ready. The MRV has an auxiliary fuel tank for a higher range, plus Navistar's MaxxPro Mine Resistant Ambush Protected survivability solution, which has been tested -- and proven -- in battle. The MRV can also drive in soft dirt, reducing your chances of getting stuck when making your way out of the city.
"This vehicle offers unprecedented performance at minimal weight with excellent maneuverability and stability in on and off road terrain. The Navistar design maximizes the supportability and maintainability of these vehicles with a high degree of commonality of components with the Navistar MV-7000 chassis also found on our MILCOTS vehicles, which are already a part of the enduring fleet for the National Defence and Canadian Forces," said Daniel Webster, director of Military Programs, Navistar Defence Canada.
There are more than 390 units currently fielded with the U.S. military, and "Navistar Defence offers speed, simplicity, agility, and affordability by leveraging our commercial capacity and purchasing volume to offer a cost-effective military towing and recovery solution," Webster said. "We recognize our customers matter most in this business -- and we do everything in our power to keep them safe and stand behind our products."
