The Perfect Combo: Armor & Power

Whether you run a private defense firm or a nation’s military, having a fleet of strong multi-purpose trucks is crucial.

This truck has been used in the Iraq War (2008-2011), the Afghan War (2008-Present), the Yemeni Civil War (2015-Present), and the Libyan Civil War (2014-Present). The Caiman has multiple variants: the XM1220 Caiman 4×4, XM1230 Caiman Plus 4×4, and Caiman 6×6, each with their own improved capabilities.
