What information is available on the various Sherp ATVs?

Special Operations Forces (SOF) military personnel requested information on the Sherp ATVs. DSIAC accessed Ukrainian, U.S., and Canadian source materials. A report on characteristics, features, and specifications of Sherp, Sherp Pickup, and Sherp the Ark vehicle variants was compiled. This report included information on the powertrains/drivetrains, pneumo-circulating suspension systems, articulated steering systems, all-wheel control systems, and automated water pumping systems for the systems. Information on the various logistical support accessories and available equipment, such as cargo trailer, boat-type sled, medical module, dwelling module, universal loading platform, and personnel transportation and tank units, was also included.

The report (attached here) was provided to combatant commands and other units associated with SOF operations for reviewing potential acquisitions to support military, domestic, and humanitarian assistance/disaster relief operations.
