BAE SYSTEMS – SD BRAZOS
ROLLING OUT EXTREME MOBILITY ON A SUPERIOR OFF-ROAD CHASSIS
BAE Systems introduces a proven, superior chassis built for mobility in rugged and extreme operating conditions, as well as best-in-class durability. Our chassis system is based on the FMTV, a family of tactical vehicles designed and manufactured by BAE Systems for the U.S. Army. With over 60,000 vehicles in active duty all over the world, the FMTV established new standards for mobility, reliability and capability in the Army’s tactical vehicle fleet.
Leveraging their successful military legacy, BAE Systems introduces a superior chassis to the severe/extreme duty global market. Now available on commercial 4×4 and 6×6 platforms, they’ve brought military toughness to civilian duty.
Their flexible frame design adapts to severe terrain—avoiding those maintenance and repair issues when on-road vehicles are driven off-road. The SD/ED Chassis has demonstrated its reliability in military vehicles by operating at greater than 95% availability rate, with over 400 million miles driven, averaging 15 years of service.
The Extreme Duty Chassis has superior ground clearance and slope-climbing capabilities, can ford though 30 inches of water and has a Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS). Driving where other vehicles can’t provides major savings in stuck vehicle retrieval costs, vehicle down time, additional transport and labor inefficiencies.
After five years of use in an extreme operating environment, an on-road vehicle may no longer be on the road. But the SD Brazos Chassis is designed to last 20 years in an off-road/extreme environment— outlasting any other comparable vehicle and reducing lifecycle costs.
With spares and services available around the globe, the SD Brazos Chassis integrates components from global brands
NO ROAD? NO PROBLEM
Getting there is never a problem with a BAE Systems Extreme Duty Chassis. Built for military toughness and proven in the most severe operating environments, the Extreme Duty Chassis drives positive ROI and bottom-line impact by:

When it comes to extreme mobility, the SD Brazos is driving where others can’t.
ON THE ROAD TO SAFETY AND OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE
Safety requires using the right vehicle to meet specific terrain requirements. Environmental safety options provide survivability, protecting the operators.
The Chassis is designed and tested to safely operate on 30% side and 60% vertical slopes. The cab-over design provides excellent visibility, reducing potential injuries as well as liability and repairs.
ENVIRONMENTAL SAFETY OPTIONS
BAE Systems Extreme Duty Chassis is built for the most hostile environments — terrain as well as potential threats. The SD Brazos can be supplied with armor-ready packages, armored packages and arctic packages. These packages can elevate operational safety to a level unmatched by on-road vehicles.
