The Oshkosh S-ATV can operate in the harshest terrain with a 70 percent off-road profile capability and cruising range of 800 km at 110 kilometers per hour, with a top speed of 145 kph.

The S-ATV’s systems engineering approach delivers the utmost in operational flexibility. It features plug and play C4I capacity, integrated ready mounts for a multitude of armaments and ballistic and blast protection upgrades – all in one modular, rapidly reconfigurable and extremely capable platform.

The S-ATV was built to provide the advanced performance needed for Special Reconnaissance, Counterinsurgency Operations, Long Range Surveillance, Site Seizure and Direct Combat.

The S-ATV is available in multiple configurations with varying protection levels, making the platform easily transportable via both fixed and rotary-wing platforms; it can be carried internally in a CH-47 Chinook helicopter or externally under either a CH-47 or CH-53 helicopter.
