Developed in conjunction with Special Operations Forces, the HDT Sword ITV (Internally Transportable Vehicle) is a light-weight tactical vehicle that facilitates mission success in austere environments. The HDT Sword ITV ensures mission range, provides multi-role configurations, and can be transported internally by V-22, M/HC- 130P/N/J, C-130/C-130J, KC-130J and C-17 fixed wing aircraft as well as the CH-47 and CH-53 helicopters. And to further enhance mission capability, the vehicle can drive on and drive off these aircraft without shoring and can be deployed through low velocity aerial delivery or JPADS methods.

Features include:

  • High performance 230 hp mid-engine design operating on low sulfur JP8/diesel to provide ultimate performance, maneuverability and versatility
  • Long travel suspension and optimized approach and departure angles
  • Carries up to four litters, in rollover protection system (ROP)
  • Performs at 10,000' (3,048 m) above mean sea level with higher horsepower levels than competitive vehicles offer at sea level
  • Traverses terrain considered impassable to conventional vehicles, including vertical rock terrain
  • Rollover safety for all occupants without limiting mission operational performance
  • Extreme maneuverability in rugged environments
  • Rapid evasive maneuverability in confined spaces
