MXT-MV

Standard, unarmored version.

MXT-MVA (Armored)

The Plasan Sasa designed [2] armored version, the MXT-MVA, has the choice of two removable armor kits, dubbed A-Kit and B-Kit, with increasing levels of protection against bullets, mines, and IEDs.[3]

Husky TSV

The Husky is a variant of the MXT-MVA modified to satisfy the UK MoD's Tactical Support Vehicles (TSV) requirements.[4]

M-ATV

Navistar built its rejected M-ATV candidate on the MXT chassis. This protection system was designed by Navistar rather than their normal MXT and MRAP partner, Plasan.[5][6]
