Production history

Although full production was stated to likely begin in July 2007[3], this was put in doubt by the announcement on May 31st 2007 that the Marine Corps had ordered 1200 of the rival International MaxxPro vehicles.[4] At the same time Force Protection received an order for 14 of the larger MRAP Category III Buffalo.[5] Cheetah was submitted to the JLTV competition but in August 2008 was officially rejected from the program.[6]
