OTTAWA, Ont. — Navistar Defence Canada announced it has delivered US$14 million in International MXT Armoured Personnel Carriers to the RCMP.

The new armoured vehicles will be used to increase protection and rescue capabilities for RCMP officers and members of the public during high-risk situations, Navistar announced.

The contract represents Navistar’s first MXT vehicle sales to the police and security sector.

“The RCMP is well regarded throughout the world as a top police service and we are honoured to have been selected to provide MXT vehicles,” said Dan Webster, president, Navistar Defence Canada. “Navistar proudly supports allied military forces overseas and now we are taking steps to help security forces serve and protect here at home. In addition, this award supports the product diversification goals of our parent company.”

Navistar’s Canadian dealer network will support the vehicles, which were produced at the company’s West Point, Miss. assembly plant.
