The basis for the Microsoft Tactical Vehicle was the 9-seater Chevrolet Suburban of the twelfth generation. This car belongs to the class of light trucks and is equipped with eight-cylinder EcoTec3 V-engines with a volume of 5.3 or 6.3 liters, as well as a 6-speed automatic transmission. The length of the Chevrolet Suburban is 5.7 meters, width – 2 meters, height – 1.89 meters. The total weight of the car is 8300 kg.

The presentation of the new product was held at the Dahlgren Innovation Day event, where more than 150 technical experts from the US military were present. It is worth noting that earlier Microsoft won the contract for the development of the Visual Augmentation System, the so-called HoloLens for Military, and was also able to win the contract for the development of the Pentagon JEDI for $ 10.
