Sherpa Carrier Download Brochure



The Mack Sherpa Carrier is a 4×4 tactical vehicle designed to provide infantry forces with the best mobility and payload in its category. It delivers outstanding on- and off-road performance to give you the confidence you need to navigate a wide variety of rugged, unforgiving terrain. The Sherpa is designed to be fully air transportable. And it is built for maximum flexibility to accommodate up-armoring with ballistic and mine kits.

The Sherpa — already fielded and serviced — is offered in several versions; both armored and unarmored variants with a regular or extended cab (allows for 4 soldier capacity). It is able to transport up to 4 tons of payload including a 10-foot shelter.

The full-time, 4×4 Sherpa is designed to give you access to remote locations. Its chassis sits high to offer more than 24 inches of under-cab ground clearance. It can cross trenches up to one-yard wide, can climb steep, 60 percent grade slopes and can stay firmly grounded driving across a 30 percent side slope. And its four-wheel disc brakes with ABS provide the footing you need to confidently stop on any terrain.
