The Canadian Department of National Defence recently marked the official delivery of the first Medium Support Vehicle System (MSVS) Standard Military Pattern (SMP) trucks from Mack Defense.
Mack Defense is contracted to deliver more than 1,500 8x8 trucks, as well as an initial five years of in-service aupport for the SMP fleet operating in Canada and throughout the world. The trucks include multiple variants such as cargo, material handling cranes, load handling systems, and mobile repair trucks. To produce the trucks, Mack Defense is working with Canadian partners including Prevost; Dumur Industries Ltd; EODC, Inc.; and Link Suspensions of Canada (Raydan Division).
MSVS SMP assembly takes place in Prevost’s Sainte-Claire, Quebec, plant. The Volvo Group’s global supply chain serves as the foundation of the in-service support program.
