Description: The Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) is a US Department of Defense (DoD) program aimed at delivering 2.5 ton (LMTV) and 5 ton (MTV) payload classes diesel powered trucks to the US Armed Forces. These highly reliable trucks support combat operations and civil disaster relief. The FMTV program started in 1988 and approximately 34,000 vehicles have been handed over to military and government customers. Originally, the program's prime contractor was Stewart & Stevenson which was acquired by Armor Holdings Inc and now is a part of Tactical Vehicle Systems Division (TVSD).

The FMTV vehicle models include troop carriers, cargo carriers, vans, dump trucks, recovery vehicles, tractors, specialty vehicles and more. Moreover, the FMTV includes three trailer models, making it a highly versatile tactical vehicle family. Costs have been deceased thanks to 85% parts commonality across the FMTV family. Armor Holdings TVSD has developed advanced versions such as Hybrid Electric Drives, 9-ton Load Handling Systems, HIMARS, 10-ton dump, the FMTV 8 x 8 Flex-Frame and the Height Reducible Electronic Enclosure (HREE).

The Low Signature Armored Cab (LSAC) is a further version which offers crew protection from assault rifle rounds, land mines and artillery fragments. LSAC development started in 2003 and over 2,000 cabs are in service with the US Army as of early 2007. The LSAC has been designed to replace the standard FMTV cab which lacks of armor protection. A two-man team can remove and replace the standard cab with LSAC in just four hours.

The BAE Systems Global Tactical Vehicle (GTV) is a member of the FMTV family and is powered by an Euro V emission regulation compliant diesel engine. The GTV maximizes tactical mobility and operational capability while meeting stringent emission control regulations. It also features the Long Term Armor Solution (LTAS) which allows to switch from truck to highly protected tactical armored vehicle without compromising load capability, mission certainty or weight-related safety.

The GTV features the Mine Blast Resistant Seat (MBRS) and 4-point restraint system, which is easily modified to accept a 5-point restraint. The MBRS is lightweight and integrates the energy absorbing system into the seat itself. The vehicle platform is designed to incorporate modifications according to customer specifications. It was showcased for the first time at DSEi exhibition in London in September 2009.
