This military amphibious cargo vehicle entered service for the British Army with a designation of FV620. The main function of this vehicle was to supply forward units with fuel and ammunition. It has a payload capacity of 5,000 kg and in the troop carrier configuration it could carry 30 fully equipped soldiers. It could also tow trailers or artillery pieces with a maximum weight of 10 ton. The cargo area of the Stalwart has large drop-down panels with waterproof seals on both sides and a drop-tailgate. The cab of this vehicle provides seating for the driver, who sits in the middle, plus two passengers. The cab is entered through the waterproof roof hatches that can be left in the open position or closed when driving into a river or a lake.
The vehicle is based on the Saracen 6×6 armored personnel carrier chassis with a modular construction allowing many parts to be interchanged. The vehicle is powered by a Rolls-Royce B-81 Mk 8B gas engine developing 220 hp or any other petrol engine of the military’s choice. It has permanent all-wheel drive giving it very impressive cross-country mobility. The vehicle is fully amphibious with minimal preparation. On water this cargo vehicle is propelled by two water-pump jet-drives giving it a maximum amphibious speed of about 7 to 8 MPH (11-12 km/h). This vehicle only had an extremely low 5,000 miles on it when purchased from a CIA facility near Washington DC.
