New Zealand MOD takes delivery of Supacat Special Operations Vehicles

The New Zealand Ministry of Defence has accepted a fleet of Supacat’s Special Operations Vehicles – Mobility Heavy (SOV-MH) it has been announced.

The new SOV-MH vehicles are based on the latest MkII version of Supacat’s HMT Extenda and provide a high level of commonality with the equivalent vehicles with other Special Forces.

Designed for, and used by, the world’s elite Special Forces, the HMT Extenda can be converted to either a 4×4 or 6×6 configuration to meet different operational requirements. Its open architecture provides for various levels of protection and great variety in the roles and missions for which it can be configured.

The SOV-MH vehicles were manufactured at Supacat’s existing assembly facilities in Australia using Supacat Team Australia members to manufacture and assemble the vehicle.

Michael Halloran, Managing Director Asia Pacific said: “We are very pleased to have achieved our first product export from the Australian office. It is a great credit to the Supacat Team Australia members that we have delivered this fleet on time and to budget.”
