SIG SAUER - Never Settle

MDM 22 – GM Defense

GM Defense had a very impressive display which included a non-defense vehicle which may pique your interest of the art of the possible.

Based on the Chevrolet Silverado truck, this Chevy Off-Road Concept Vehicle is an example their ability to design a fully integrated solution leveraging a GM commercial derivative with the ability to scale to any level of production.

The vehicle offers off-road capabilities, control and performance rooted in a production-based foundation and off-the-shelf performance enhancements.

It offers increased payload capacity and capability to hold lightweight armor when compared to the recently adopted Infantry Squad Vehicle which is not armored.

The frame was shortened and a custom-designed, 4130 chromoly tubular safety structure was integrated while the modified chassis was wrapped with a custom, lightweight body.

It is powered by a Chevrolet Performance LT4 crate engine, a 6.2L supercharged V-8 that’s rated at 650 hp. It’s backed by a 10L90 10-speed automatic transmission that sends torque to a two-speed transfer case and distributes it to 37-inch-tall off-road tires mounted on 20-inch beadlock wheels. The vehicle also includes the Chevrolet Performance Big Brake Upgrade System.

        Seems to me you could ditch one of the spares, mount the remaining up against the cap longitudinally, and then you’d have all the room you’d need to install a platform and a pintle mounted minigun with gun shield…
