   The ACMAT VLTP-NP (Vehicule Leger Tactique Polyvalent Non Protege, or Non-Protected Light Multirole Tactical Vehicle) is a new French vehicle. In 2016 French Army ordered 3 700 of these light utility vehicles to replace their ageing Peugeot P4, that was introduced back in 1982. It is planned that first production vehicles will be delivered to the French Army in 2017 and deliveries will be completed in 2020.

   The ACMAT VLTP-NP is a rebadged version of the Ford Everest sports utility vehicle. The Ford Everest was developed in Australia and is produced in Thailand. Though some modifications were made to adapt this vehicle for military needs. The VLTP-NP has got a different engine and stronger suspension. This purely commercial design was chosen in order to reducue procurement and servicing costs.

   The VLTP-NP has little in common with previous ACMAT vehicles, that are known for their simplicity, ruggedness, reliability and commonality of parts across their product range. Also unlike its predecessor, the Peugeot P4, it is not a dedicated military vehicle.

   The ACMAT VLTP-NP light utility vehicle has a payload capacity of 900 kg. It is mainly intended to carry soldiers and communication equipment.

   This vehicle is powered by a diesel engine, developing 150 hp. Such engine is not offered for the Ford Everest. Despite its commercial nature this light utility vehicle has got good off-road mobility.
