Future Heavy Tactical Truck 2001-01-0889

The Future Heavy Tactical Truck (FHTT) project is a preliminary look at the capabilities of a heavy class tactical vehicle designed from the ground up which integrates both commercial and military combat technologies. The program objective was to provide concept designs and analysis to assess the performance capabilities of a new truck and to establish a technology base program to support future truck innovations. Two vehicle concept designs were developed. Concept One is a “high tech” version, which would incorporate the most advanced technologies and designs available and the second version, Concept Two, is a scaled back version based on performance and cost tradeoffs. Based on the results of these efforts, the Army has established an applied research program creating a partnership of Advanced Concepts and National Automotive Center engineers and scientists to conceive the Army's plan for its heavy, medium and light class trucks of the future.
