IWA – Hornet Special Operations Vehicle


Built from a modified Turbo Diesel, Toyota Hi-Lux, the Hornet Special Operations Vehicle was designed to offer off-road mobility in desert conditions. Lessons learned from Arctic Trucks were applied to the Hornet due to the similar traction challenges in a sandy environment. They use 315/70 R17 tires which offers a wider footprint for grip and lower ground pressure. Additionally, they have an onboard tire inflation/deflation system.


The Hornet can be configured for right or left hand drive with automatic or manual transmissions. Additionally, the buy can choose between the 2.4 liter or 3.0 liter Turbocharged Diesel engines. The Hornet has a 4.56 final drive differential ratio with ARB front and rear diff locks. It features a 142 liter fuel tank and 24v system.

It is also CH-47 transportable and has a MIRA certified rollover protection system. There is also a removable A-pillar and header roof rail for commander. As you can see from the photos, the truck can be fitted with a variety of weapin mounts including a traversing ring. Another interesting feature is that there incorprated a CASEVAC system.
