TMV » 6x6M
The TMV 6x6M is a concept of a lightweight wheeled military trucks 6x6 designed and manufactured by the British Company TMV Limited. Significantly, the modular design concept enables product extension to 4x4 and 8x8 variants. The prototype version was not armed. The TMV 6x6M is equipped with an armour-clad, fully enclosed "bath tub" hull that houses all major components, offering significantly greater protection from mines and IEDs than conventional vehicles. Additional protection to the crew and passengers is provided by a composite cab and composite rear pod for troop carrying applications. The TMV 6x6M is based on established aerospace and racing car construction principles. The transporter is powered by a Cummins ISBe5 in-line four-cylinder, 4,500cc turbocharged, water-cooled diesel engine, with a power output of 147 kilowatts (200bhp), generating up to 900Nm of torque. This enables a limited top speed of 85mph/137 kph, combined with first-class dynamic performance and driveability. Internal diesel fuel tanks enable a typical vehicle range of 700 miles/1,120 kilometres.
