   The International 7000 series heavy utility trucks were developed by the Navistar Defense. In 2005 the US Army awarded Navistar a contract to provide nearly  than 2 900 International 7000 series trucks and spare parts to Afghan National Army and Iraqi Ministry of Defense. A follow-on contract for more than 7 000 trucks was awarded in 2008. In 2009 Canada ordered 1 300 of these trucks, locally known as MSVS (Medium Support Vehicle System) to replace the ageing MLVWs, that are reaching the end of their service lives.

   The International 7000 series is a militarized version of the civilian design. Vehicle uses Navistar's commercially available WorkStar chassis.

   These heavy utility trucks are available with multiple body configurations and are used to haul heavy-duty materials off-road and tow trailers. These trucks are available with standard, extended or sleeper cabs. Cab can be easily fitted with add-on armor kit.

   This military truck is available with 4x2, 4x4, 6x4 and 6x6 wheelbase configurations. The International 7000 series is proposed with a number of diesel engines. These are International DT 466 (210-300 hp), International DT 570 (310-330 hp), Caterpillar C11/C13 (305-430 hp) and Cummins ISM (285-425 hp).

   There are a number of variants of the International 7000 series. Trucks employed in Afghanistan and Iraq are available as troops carriers, tankers, water tankers, wreckers and hazardous material trucks. Chassis with 4x4 configuration of this truck is also used by the MaxxPro MRAP vehicle.
