American Rheinmetall Vehicles and GM Defense LLC have won a contract for the first phase of the U.S. Army’s Common Tactical Truck (CTT) Program. The multi-phased program aims to replace the Army’s family of heavy tactical trucks with the production of up to 40,000 trucks valued at up to $14 billion.

The objective of the multi-phased program is to reinstate the Army’s family of heavy tactical trucks valued at up to $14 billion with the production of up to 40,000 trucks.

In 2022, the two powerhouse defense companies formed a strategic collaboration to compete in the program; bringing together two top-notch engineering and manufacturing behemoths to deliver a modern, tactical truck that enhances Soldier capability through advanced technologies including advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) for safety, increased off-road mobility, cybersecurity, machine learning, artificial intelligence, improved survivability, and fuel efficiency, among other evolving technologies.

The team presented the HX3 Common Tactical Truck (HX3-CTT). The HX3 is the latest generation of trucks in the extremely successful, combat-proven, HX family of trucks which are in service with several NATO and U.S. allied nations. The HX family of trucks derives from MAN Truck and Bus commercial truck offerings bringing a high degree of commerciality to the fleet, a priority for the Army in the CTT program.

The HX3-CTT next-generation system has enhanced on and off-road mobility, integrated survivability, and an open digital architecture supporting ADAS and enabled autonomous vehicle operation. Merged with the open architecture, the commercial backbone of the HX3-CTT will support persistent modernization and allow for rapid rises in capability as technologies mature. With a global footprint of both current military user nations and commercial dealer networks, the HX3-CTT offers a basis for optimized lifecycle costs and service support to the Army around the world.

Both American Rheinmetall Vehicles and GM Defense look forward to providing competition to the Army’s CTT Program. As committed partners to the Army, bringing tremendous operational capability coupled with advanced safety features, ensuring the Soldiers can accomplish their mission safely and efficiently. Altogether the team will bring a transformational truck that leverages the commercial strengths of its partners, Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles and General Motors, and the commonality of the HX3-CTT design, said Matthew Warnick, Managing Director for American Rheinmetall Vehicles.

“Winning the CTT prototype phase demonstrates the undeniable value that the strategic collaboration between GM Defense and American Rheinmetall Vehicles brings to this important, next-generation Army program,” said Steve duMont, president of GM Defense.

duMont added the company looks forward to continuing its work with American Rheinmetall Vehicles to execute the prototype phase while obtaining the required insights to strengthen its position to win future phases of the program.

HX3 Common Tactical Truck

Technology for the future: The HX3-CTT includes an innovative, interchangeable protected cab design, ADAS, and drive-by-wire operation. The new open systems electrical architecture grants swift integration of leader-follower, teleoperation, and fully autonomous capabilities that concentrate on protecting the most significant combat asset – the Soldier.

Common platforms and parts to establish a group of vehicles: The HX3-CTT is the new, next-generation variant of the internationally popular HX family of military-off-the-shelf tactical trucks. It possesses a distinguished level of commonality and modularity across variants: cargo, load-handling systems, tankers, and line haul tractors.

Commerciality in its DNA: The HX3-CTT leverages world-class advances in commercial truck technology, fuel efficiency, safety, and emissions reduction.

Allied interoperability: The HX family of trucks have been sold to 20 customers globally including an active allied user group consisting of the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Austria, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark, creating common global supply chains, training opportunities, and integrated operations among key allies operating around the world.
