American automaker AM General has a wide range of innovative vehicles on display at the ongoing IDEXA and is also displaying a wide variety of mobility solutions offered by the company.

 

“IDEX 2019 represents a great opportunity for AM General to demonstrate our product and service capabilities to our international customers,” said AM General Executive Vice President, International Defense, Nguyen Trinh. “As an end to end provider of leading ground vehicle systems, AM General is poised to support our customers whether it’s through providing customized vehicles, supporting their after-sales and modernization needs, or providing localized manufacturing services.”

 

AM General’s evolutionary light tactical vehicle, the NXT 360 with Tacticam armour, and the new vehicle features a higher power output, greater GVW, better ride and handling and better overall protection.

 

On display at the show is the NXT 360 demonstrating 3D camouflage technology, by use of Tacticam, an advanced passive signature management system. This highly durable camouflage system utilizes the latest in materials, coatings, and engineered geometry to reduce a vehicle’s signature across multiple spectrums.

 

The Tacticam system features a pattern randomness that mimics the brightness and contrast variations of natural environments; camo patterns can also be applied.

 

Also, on display is the HMMWV Hawkeye 105mm Self-Propelled Howitzer, which is easily transportable and delivered by sling load, air drop and low velocity air deployment.

 

The HMMWV Hawkeye can provide a dramatic increase in combat power and emplacement, shoot and displacement can be done in under 3 minutes. It can undertake Indirect and Direct fires over 360 degrees (6400 mils) without stops.

 

AM General has produced and sustained more than 300,000 tactical vehicles in over 70 countries.
