In further support, HIPPO Multipower have developed a family of All Terrain Support Vehicles (ATSV) to enable light forces to “fight light.” The vehicles are available in 8×8 diesel-hydraulic and 6×6 diesel-electric (capable of operating with very low acoustic and thermal signature). Both models of ATSV have four key characteristics:

· Payload – The HIPPO ATSV can carry 1,650 lbs of payload, sufficient to support an infantry platoon for 72 hours. It can tow 4,400 lbs, sufficient for a 105mm artillery piece.
· Mobility – Capable of parachute insertion, internal carriage by CH-47 and CH-53, underslung by utility helicopter (eg UH-60), towable, amphibious, superb terrain accessibility in jungles, mountains, swamps, desert, snow and the urban environment.
· Exportable power – The HIPPO ATSV can export 5 kW of electrical power for battery charging, communications, electronic counter measures (ECM), power tools, ISTAR, tethered UAS, remote weapons, water purification, water heating, refrigeration, emergency lights, etc. It can also export hydraulic power for engineer tools, hydraulic masts, etc.
· Optional robotics – – All manned HIPPO ATSV variants can be fitted for remote and/or autonomous operation – optionally robotic. HIPPO UGVs can be used for autonomous resupply, reconnaissance, surveillance, fire support, route proving, CASEVAC, CBRN, etc.
