#Industry QuestionGovernment ResponseDate1Will there be more details on the survivability and armor package for the CTT?Yes. Classified Annex C is referenced in Attachment 0008 - Draft Abbreviated Specification (A-Spec), contains more details on the survivability and is available upon request, with proper credentials; refer to the SAM.gov for a point of contact. 16-Nov-20212Will there be an estimate for number or percentage of CTT getting the armor/survivability package? In past fleets (such as HEMTT or HET), only a percentage of the A-cab are upgraded to the b-cab armor package. Wondering if the PM has gotten this far on the CTT.No, a current estimate is not established; however, it is under development and is anticipated to be a split between soft and armored cabs. 16-Nov-20213Request a copy of the MRAP Capability Production Document (CPD) 1.1.MRAP Capability Production Document (CPD) 1.1 is replaced by the CTT Annex C referenced in Attachment 0008 - Draft A-Spec.16-Nov-20214Our concept is based on 24Volt electrical systems. Would that be allowed?Component level solutions will not be specified by the Government. However, other requirements, such as intervehicle requirements, must still be met. The RPP will contain requirements that must be met. It is at the offeror's discretion to decide if their solution meets those requirements. 16-Nov-20215We can provide cab concepts ballistic and non-ballistic with 2 and 3 seats. Would that match or do you require also 4 or 5 person seating capacity?At this time, the Army's anticipated desired capability is provisioned for a 3rd occupant in the Gunner's Sling for Armored Objective Gunner Protection Kit (OGPK) equipped variant. 16-Nov-20216Which exhaust emission level is required?No specific exhaust emission level is required.16-Nov-2021Common Tactical Truck (CTT) Industry DayIndustry Q&ANOTE: All information on the CTT program, including previous documents posted and the responses to the questions, is SUBJECT TO CHANGEDISTRIBUTION STATEMENT A.

However, the CTT Family of Vehicles (FoV) is desired to be common with industry to facilitate future technology insertion as they become available.16-Nov-202110Is there a replacement volume estimation per model and timeline of expected fleet entry and fleet build-up?No, not at this time. 16-Nov-202111Is there a financial compensation for the prototypes that are required?The Government is considering a cost cap for rapid prototyping. 16-Nov-202112Will the US-Army perform the maintenance or is outsourcing to civil dealer network also possible?The Government intends to leverage full organic maintenance. 16-Nov-202113Do you require a certain military track record from the parties selected to the CTT process?At this time there is no military track record requirement. Evaluation criteria will be listed in the Request for Prototype Proposal (RPP).16-Nov-2021DISTRIBUTION STATEMENT A. Approved for public release: distribution unlimited. #Industry QuestionGovernment ResponseDate14Is there a requirement to produce a certain % in weight or cost in the US?No, there is no requirement to produce a certain percentage in weight or cost in the US.16-Nov-202115The selection of OTA prototypes; how does that impact production?The prototype evaluation criteria and the follow-on production success metrics will be identified in the RPP. 16-Nov-202116On Industry Day Slide 19, the ranges provided, are they over a specific GVW?Yes, they are specified over the mission profiles at the load requirements specified in Attachment 0008 - Draft A-Spec.16-Nov-202117Will trailers be included in the scope?No16-Nov-202118NRE section of OTA award. What is the anticipation?TBD. Additional information will be provided in the RPP.16-Nov-202119Refer to Industry Day Slide #13, number of prototypes, there is a drastic difference. What is the Army's vision for prototype award?The Government intends to receive a minimum number of prototypes that represent the most common and/or range of CTT mission roles across the FoV. The RPP will contain the number of prototypes.16-Nov-202120What is the level of Tech Data Rights? TBD. Additional information will be provided in the RPP. 16-Nov-2021DISTRIBUTION STATEMENT A.
