Work begins on Husky vehicles

Work has started on a fleet of over 200 new 'go anywhere' vehicles which will greatly improve the protection of British troops in Afghanistan.

Under a contract worth almost £120m, the US company Navistar Defense is building and supporting the new Husky vehicle which has been designed for a range of missions including transporting food, water and ammunition, and acting as a command vehicle at headquarters. Some vehicles will be fitted out as protected ambulances.
