“This effort is reminiscent of the original Liberty Truck, a heavy-duty truck produced by the United States Army during World War I. It was the first official standardized motor vehicle adopted and produced by the U.S. military. The CTT program can be viewed as the Liberty Truck of the 21st century, as it will similarly seek to streamline the Army’s supply, maintenance, and training requirements,” informs Brig. Gen. Luke Peterson, the Army’s program executive officer.

According to a recent statement, the Army will start testing the initial prototypes in 2024. A capabilities development document that will be delivered to the Army Requirements Oversight Council will be fueled by the evaluation results.

“The prototyping effort will really allow the Army to evaluate current commercial technology in a military-type application, modified off-the-shelf for military purposes. We’re going to learn a lot about what business can do for us, and the Army’s capacity to make educated decisions will be largely influenced by cost”, Peterson had said last fall.
