   The Oshkosh Special Purpose All-Terrain Vehicle or S-ATV was developed to meet a US Special Operations Command's requirement for a ground mobility vehicle. It is also aimed at possible export customers. The S-ATV was revealed in 2012. This lightweight vehicle was developed for reconnaissance and other specialized missions, such as counter-insurgency operations and long-range surveillance. Its production could commence in 2013. However it lost competition to the General Dynamics Flyer, that was selected by the US SOCOM. So the Oshkosh S-ATV never reached production.

   This special forces vehicle can be fitted with add-on armor kit, which provides some degree of protection against small arms fire, artillery shell splinters, landmines and improvised explosive devices. Production vehicles were planned to be available with various levels of integrated protection.

   This military vehicle has integrated mounts for various weapons, such as 12.7 mm heavy machine gun or 40 mm automatic grenade launcher.

   The Oshkosh S-ATV accommodates 2 to 7 passengers, depending on the version and particular mission requirements. Driver is seated in the middle.

   The Oshkosh S-ATV is powered by an unspecified diesel engine. It is speculated that it develops between 225 and 300 hp, depending on the version. Engine is coupled with an automatic transmission. This military vehicle can travel at high speed and has good cross-country mobility over rough terrain. It is claimed that the top speed of the S-ATV is over 120 km/h. A central tyre inflation system is proposed as an option. Height of the vehicle can be reduced for transportation. The S-ATV can be carried by a CH-47 Chinook helicopter both externally and internally.
