The GMV 1.1 is an all-terrain vehicle developed especially for use by special operations forces (SOF).

The GMV 1.1 was developed to fill a ground mobility capability gap that was identified by SOCOM. A search to procure a SOF-unique vehicle to cover the shortfall in mobility over denied austere terrain was initiated. The result was the GMV 1.1 manufactured by General Dynamic Ordnance and Tactical Systems (GD-OTS).
