Miscellaneous Info:

U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) initiated the Ground Mobility Vehicle 1.1 (GMV 1.1) program to find a suitable vehicle to replace their HMMWV based GMV’s. The three finalist vehicles were the AM General GMV 1.1, Flyer Defense/General Dynamics Ordnance & Tactical Systems Flyer 72 Advanced Light Strike Vehicle and the Special Operations Tactical Vehicle (SOTV). After a long and sometimes contentious process, the Flyer 72 ALSV was selected as USSOCOM's new GMV 1.1 vehicle.

Although not selected as the new GMV 1.1, the SOTV is still considered a very capable vehicle as it is highly adaptable to a wide variety of special operations missions. A unique feature of the vehicle is that it can be quickly fitted with a number of different external armament and armor packages. One of the options is a low-profile configuration which allows the vehicle to blend into the local environment as a "normal" pick-up truck.  The SOTV is also transportable by many helicopters in use by SOCOM, including being interally carried in the CH/MH-47 Chinook due to a collapsible turret/weapons station.
