1 All-aluminum structure makes FED up to 10% lighter than comparably sized steel vehicle & reduces fuel consumption by 6-7% due to lighter frame, engine, driveline & chassis Huck Bobtail ® Fasteners Huck Bobtail ® Fasteners CR56 Aluminum Armor Panels (Integral and B-Kit) CR56 Aluminum Armor Panels (Integral and B-Kit) Forged Aluminum Wheels High-Strength Aluminum Suspension Components & Mounting Structure High-Strength Aluminum Suspension Components & Mounting Structure Developed in partnership with TARDEC and Ricardo Inc., the FED vehicle significantly improves fuel efficiency while meeting performance, protection and payload requirements. Interchangeable Aluminum Blast & Brush Shield in 2040 Aluminum Armor Interchangeable Aluminum Blast & Brush Shield in 2040 Aluminum Armor Blast Shield Connected Directly to Rocker Panels Blast Shield Connected Directly to Rocker Panels Friction Stir Welding of High-Strength Alloys Friction Stir Welding of High-Strength Alloys Aluminum Cab Integrated Directly with Front & Rear Chassis Modules, Eliminating Frame Rails Aluminum Cab Integrated Directly with Front & Rear Chassis Modules, Eliminating Frame Rails Welded Aluminum Spaceframe & Up-Armorable Cab Welded Aluminum Spaceframe & Up-Armorable Cab

2 X CLOSE Makes FED up to 10% lighter than a comparably sized steel vehicle Reduces fuel consumption by 6-7% by enabling lighter engine, driveline and chassis

3 X CLOSE Deliver strong joints without compromising the integrity of the materials, which can occur with conventional welding techniques Maintain joint strength when absorbing sudden impacts

4 X CLOSE Deliver strength equivalent to steel at dramatically lower weight with forged aluminum Eliminate welding, require minimal machining, easily bolt into place and reduce parts count significantly with one-piece forgings

5 X CLOSE Enhances integral and appliqué (add- on) armor protection Provides excellent ballistic and blast protection

6 X CLOSE Eliminates redundant frame rails Reduces vehicle weight while still maintaining strength

7 X CLOSE Reduce weight significantly compared to conventional steel wheels Enhance grip when tracking over rough terrain, which improves handling during hard acceleration and braking Reduce tire rolling resistance by up to 3% compared to comparably sized steel wheels, which results in 1% fuel savings, quicker acceleration and improved braking performance

8 X CLOSE Reduces curb weight by replacing blast shield with thinner brush shield in non- combat environments Resists blasts without failure or cracking

9 X CLOSE Gives additional strength because rocker panels are load bearing Enhances protection for soldiers in the cab

10 X CLOSE Reduces weld-induced distortion Enables joining of thick aluminum plates in multiple alloys for blast shield
