AM General will display its Brutus 155mm Mobile Howitzer for the first time at the Annual Meeting and Exposition of the Association of the U.S. Army (AUSA) scheduled from Oct. 14 to 16, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C..
The Brutus howitzer system, currently mounted onto a Medium Tactical Vehicle, is the scaled-up version of the Hawkeye 105mm Mobile Howitzer system mounted on a Humvee/HMMWV light tactical vehicle, which will be also on display at the exposition. The howitzers employ AM General’s patented soft recoil technology.
“AM General has been a trusted partner to our military customers and we’re proud of our tremendous history of providing advanced, cost-effective, and dependable capabilities on the battlefield,” said AM General President and CEO, Andy Hove. “This year, at AUSA, we will further demonstrate to our customers that we are ready now and show how we are investing in the future.”
AM General, in current collaboration with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), will also debut a new concept military Jeep for customers in need of a rugged, lightweight vehicle. This light tactical vehicle rounds out the company’s offerings along the capability weight spectrum. Through a partnership with BC Customs, AM General will also have on display the X-LT3, an ultralight tactical vehicle offering superior off-road mobility and agility that will be running the Baja 1000 in November.
