The MPT is engineered and designed based on existing and test-proven AM General components, Off-the-Shelf (OTS) AM General items, Commercial OTS (COTS) items from other commercial vehicles and Military COTS (M-COTS) items. The MPT was designed to allow customers to configure payload modules based on their needs. The Cab & Chassis Base Platform is the base vehicle configuration. MPT modules can be developed by the purchasing country’s engineering experts or, if needed, by AM General engineers. By making it commercially available, customers do not have to go through the Us government’s Foreign Military Sales (FMS) programme, but can receive the chassis, where AM General then uses a local supply chain to build up a truck, upon customer specification.
Modules can include several applicable configurations utilising a 2-man cab. Other variants include the 2-man w/ Flat Bed, 2+6 Personnel Carrier, 4-man Base w/ Cargo box, and 9-Crew Capacity Vehicle.
