Abstract

Having met every technical objective laid out in the Phase I Proposal, the Sabre FMLTWV provides tactical variants not otherwise available to SOCOM with its current fleet. Available in both Narrow Vehicle (NV) and Standard Vehicle (SV) sizes, the FMLTWV shares a unique and innovative active suspension system that provides extended mobility via AWD 4-wheel steering allowing the vehicle to turn within a 14 foot radius for conducting U-turns in narrow streets, while carrying a full load. This suspension provides unparalleled stability for the narrow platform while being self adapting to support empty and fully loaded conditions. The FMLTWV, NV variant "Fighting Sabre" also meets CV-22 ITV size requirements. The FMLTWV utilizes multiple propulsion typologies designed from the beginning to be field swappable from conventional to hybrid operation. Sabre Engineering, Inc. is a leader in hybrid vehicle technology with having designed the largest currently operating fleet of series hybrids in the world. This best-in-class technology provides a vehicle in either conventional or hybrid architectures with clean electrical battlefield power to support the ever increasing mobile electric power demands placed on the special operations solider.
