US Army Airborne soldiers have tested the newly acquired Infantry Squad Vehicle (ISV) at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, the service reported.
Soldiers from the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions drove the General Motors Defense vehicle in the pilot test, followed by the initial operational test.
Based on the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 platform, the vehicle provides quicker mobility to infantry soldiers who generally traverse challenging terrain on foot. The vehicle can carry nine soldiers and squad provisions, allowing longer battle deployments.
