2.2. As part of a review in support of the Adaptive Dispersed Operations concept, the Canadian Light Forces (LF) need new light tactical personnel and cargo carrying capabilities. These capabilities will move soldiers and equipment across complex terrain which currently can only be reached on foot. It will lighten CAF soldiers’ on-person combat burden by carrying additional equipment and supplies, and will cover a larger area of operation through increased speed, range, and duration. This powerful, lightweight solution is expected to operate in domestic and expeditionary deployments, up to and including high threat environments.
2.3. The LFE project will seek to acquire up to 330 Tactical Mobility Platform (TMP) vehicles and light trailers that serve two (2) distinct operational purposes/requirements: a) TMP-Personnel to carry soldiers and their loads, and b) TMP-Cargo to carry larger loads.
2.4. Two TMP variants, or a single TMP variant that can be easily configured to fulfill both variant’s requirements, are both viable solutions.
2.5. The TMP vehicle will be able to carry a crew of two (2) to four (4) CAF soldiers, their weapons and effects, and combat supplies to sustain them for a minimum of 24 and up to 72 hours on operation. The light trailer will be used to carry any other loads as required. The Project also plans to acquire Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) elements to operate and maintain the fleet. A list of preliminary requirements can be found in Annex A- Technical Requirements.
