USMC Medium Tactical Truck

Mack and Navistar tactical truck prototyping contract. The MTT replaces the marines' equivalent of the FMTV, as I understand it. So it will be used for tons of stuff. Hybrid, fording up to 5 feet. The power generation requirement hasn't increased beyond 30kW. Is that really enough for "all" mission sets anymore?

    If you need more power generation throw a generator on the back of the truck, I'm sure it can move a pretty decent-sized generator with a chassis of that size.

      Does anyone know the actual plan for external power supply to newfangled SHORAD and DEW toys?

        I assume just standard diesel generators, they've got a self contained transportable 60kw generator set that'll output 240/416V that should suffice for a 50kw DE-SHORAD setup.

    My only objections are as follows:
    Mack got bought by Volvo of all people. The global HQ building in Greensboro is up for lease. The bulldog is sitting in front of a Volvo dealership now.
    Navistar is fricking garbage, everything they make is fricking garbage, everything they design is fricking garbage, and the US taxpayers are getting ripped off giving them a single fricking cent.

      >covered terrorism
      You do realize even the prelude to 2001 there was a threat to terrorism? A few years prior the world trade center got bombed by them.

      Yeah I'm gonna echo what this guy said.
      If your takeaway from the war is that Russian garbage is competitive you are mentally impaired.

        liking ukraine or not has nothing to do with the phrase
        >multi-million dollar NATO gizmos are being destroyed by relatively cheap Russian simple gizmos so I'm not sure what your point is
        which marks you as a tard, anon

          The Russia/Ukraine war will be remembered as the war of cheap drones. Everyone has seen dozens of videos of $200 drones with $10 warheads taped onto them destroying multi-million dollar equipment

            Realtime war is an end of the decades-long historiographic cycle of
            >grand narrative ->
            >contrarian counter-narrative ->
            >complicating the narrative ->
            >both sides tho ->
            >deboonking all narratives (#no narratives)
            >mixed modeling of narratives (#all narratives)
            >feminist narratives (#believe her narratives)
            >etc.
            All of that is now compressed down into days, weeks, months at most - among those who pay attention. So the whole academic-industrial complex of defining and gatekeeping the framing by which a conflict will be remembered is being upended at the moment. Drones will be one of the major themes, sure, but it won't be the sole focus.

    using ww2 tech wouldn't change it
    this has nothing to do with making trucks more fuel efficient
    >muh repairs
    >muh logistic
    this doesn't matter

    let me guess you are the moron who thinks logistics win wars

    why won't the Army and the Marines use the same type of truck?
