TMV unveils innovative Special Forces/ Reconnaissance 6x6 militaryvehicle. Stand OR14, DVD 2010, Millbrook, UK
 A significant new chapter in the development of British military vehiclemanufacturer, TMV, begins at the DVD 2010 show today with the unveiling of afully-functioning six-wheel drive, six-wheel steer military vehicle in Special Forcesguise.The newcomer is part of the on-going development of the innovative TMV platformand modular product range, with production scheduled for 2011.The TMV6x6M SF, which will be demonstrated on the off-road course throughoutthe duration of the show, comes just twelve months after TMV revealed the vehicleprototype that showcased the company’s innovative and flexible approach tomilitary vehicle design.Responding to the changing nature of military threat, and its impact on therequirements of utility vehicles deployed in conflict situations, TMV adopted a freshand unique design strategy and developed the vehicle concept from a clean sheetof paper, rather than accept compromise by modifying an existing platform.Engineered to deliver extreme mobility, excellent dynamic performance, highpayload and enhanced blast & ballistic protection, the TMV 6x6M deliversunparalleled levels of operational flexibility, focused on fulfilling key militaryrequirements.

Twin ‘V’ Hull Chassis Construction
To achieve best blast protection for occupants and minimise transmitted energy, atwin ‘V’ hull design has been developed by TMV and is universally used in theconstruction of all TMV model variants. Unique to TMV, it is constructed of stainless steel formers clad with belly blast plate throughout, its shape facilitatingthe dissipation of the blast energy wave at the point of impact, and also at the baseof the occupant-protected cell.
Located above the unique, integral V-shaped hull, the 6x6M modular superstructure is a layered approach of high-technology materials designed tominimise the weight of the appropriate protection solution.This incorporates both steel and composite layers and the introduction of the new‘SMART’ strike face material from Plasan. Protection is STANAG 3 ballistic and 2Aand 2B blast (6kg mine under wheel and belly).The superstructure – shown on the 6x6M in Special Forces guise - is mounted tooutriggers attached to the unique hull, which minimises the blast energy impactingthe personnel areas of the vehicle. This, combined with the lightweight structureand the high positioning of the occupants, provides improved protection from blast,while the lightweight footprint provides passive protection by minimising thetriggering of land-based devices. Significantly, the ground pressure exerted by the6x6M is appreciably lower than that of comparable vehicles.Driver and commander positions are mounted well behind the front wheels, therebyminimising transmitted forced following blast. Protection solutions up to STANAG 4blast and ballistic are available on higher GVW variants.
 A modular principle is applied to the rear superstructure configuration, which isspecified according to role and usage, and which can be configured in a variety of materials depending on level of protection required and payload demand. BesidesSF, APC, Ambulance, Utility, Troop Carrier, Single and Crew Cab, Recovery andMunitions platform variants are all available. All are easily demountable in the fieldfor adaptation to alternative roles and for servicing.4-wheel variants are available in 6.0t GVW to 9.5t GVW solutions6-wheel variants are available in 7.5t GVW to 18.0t GVW solutions8-wheel variants available in 9.5t GVW to 22.0t GVW solutions (2012)
With the engine and transmission housed within the V-tub hull and mountedlow-down in the middle of the vehicle, weight distribution is optimised to greatlyassist the dynamic performance of the TMV 6x6M.High power-to-weight ratio, coupled to permanent all-wheel-drive and adaptiveall-wheel-steer, ensure a very high degree of on-road and off-road performance,with excellent manoeuvrability and approach/ departure angles (52%/50%respectively), due to minimal front and rear overhang.Fully-independent air suspension - assisted with twin coil-over dampers on allwheels - delivers excellent dynamic handling and good passenger comfort, andadjustable ride height allows the centre of gravity to be kept low for higher speeduse, but crucially allows the vehicle to ride higher when a mine or IED threat is©2010 TMV.

anticipated.The six-wheel steer system is adaptive, and can be programmed to allow touch-button change of steering configuration per axle, according to specific needs in thefield.These and all other vehicle controls and instrumentation are integral within a singlemulti-functional electronic module mounted in the centre of the vehicle dashboard. A menu-based system allows touch-button access and scroll-through adjustment of all major dynamic functions of the vehicle, together with a default electronicinstrument display when in normal drive mode.
Maintenance and Refurbishment
To achieve reliability and ease of maintenance, as well as meeting primary militaryand civilian specifications, the major components in the TMV 6x6M will be familiar,particularly to the armed forces, with the vehicle utilising as many standardproprietary parts as is practical.The vehicle is powered by a mid-mounted Cummins ISBe5 in-line four-cylinder,4,500cc turbocharged, water-cooled diesel engine, with a power output of 147kilowatts (200bhp), generating up to 900Nm of torque.In the TMV 6x6M, this enables a limited top speed of 85mph/137 kph, combinedwith first-class dynamic performance and driveability. As part of the designphilosophy, the chassis has been packaged for all major four-cylinder long-strokediesels commonly in use, allowing the customer to specify their powertrain anddriveline thereby minimising the logistic footprint and cost in service.The Allison 2500SP 6-speed, fully-automatic transmission utilised in the TMV 6x6Mis also common to a wide range of military and civilian applications. It drivesthrough a transfer gearbox with Hi and Lo ratios and via six Dana lockabledifferentials, which transfer the power via driveshafts to the six wheels, located withupper and lower wishbones on all axles. Brembo ventilated disc brakes, withtwin-piston calipers and 300mm discs, are common to all wheels, providingexcellent stopping power.Internal diesel fuel tanks enable a typical vehicle range of 700 miles/1,120kilometres.For maintenance routines, all fluid, belt and filter checks and changing of enginecylinder head can be achieved through clipped panels on the intercooler mounts,allowing ease of daily use. Release of eight mounting points for the protected cellallows access for major overhaul and refurbishment enabling engine/gearboxchange in eight hours.
The TMV 6x6M SF variant delivers class-leading lethality. Twin half-inch machineguns mounted to a 360 degree ring mount, can be replaced with grenadelaunchers and up to four front and rear 7.62 mounts, smoke grenade launchersfore and aft for cloaking. IR systems are available for efficient night work.
On-Board Power 
24V electrics are standard. 300A, 600A and 1000A options are all compliant withDEF STAN 59-411 class A & Mil Stan 461E. APC, Command and Liaison variantwiring routings have provisioned plug-in points for electrical, USB, Ethernet andISDN connectors to achieve standard 1m cable run to any required equipment.This minimises on-board wiring and maximises available payload.
The modular design has been created to ease overseas assembly in a variety of forms. Vehicles can be supplied complete, SKD and CKD and sourcing of
