Navistar Defense, LLC yesterday showcased its International MaxxPro Dash Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) ambulance variant at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Winter Symposium and Exhibition. The company can also offer ambulance kits to convert existing MRAP vehicles into blast-protected ambulances.
“Our warfighters are challenged to complete a variety of missions and survivability continues to be key,” said Archie Massicotte, president, Navistar Defense. “After fielding nearly 8,000 MaxxPro vehicles, we are proud to make the Dash ambulance available to help support the ongoing critical need for MRAP vehicles.” The Dash Ambulance includes an easy-to-use litter assist system as well as a protected work space benefitting medics and patients. This solution, paired with the company’s DXM™ independent suspension, helps medical aid navigate rough terrain to get where it is needed.
