Navistar Defense to Reset Maxxpro® Vehicles for UAE

The survivability and mobility capabilities are essential to ensure our allies are able to complete their missions safely. We are encouraged to see these battle tested vehicles get back to operational-ready condition to enable and protect our customers.
