(Reuters) - Truck and engine maker Navistar International Corp (NYSE: NAV) reported a fall in revenue for the sixth straight quarter due to lower truck sales and said one of its units had received a subpoena from the United States defense department.

The net loss attributable to Navistar widened to $34 million, or 42 cents per share, in the third quarter ended July 31, from $28 million, or 34 cents per share, a year earlier.
Revenue fell 17.7 percent to $2.09 billion.

Navistar Defense LLC, a unit of the company, said it received a subpoena from the United States Department of Defense Inspector General asking for documents related to the sale of some independent suspension systems to the government.
The Lisle, Illinois-based company has submitted the documents and intends to comply with the subpoena, Navistar said in a filing on Thursday. (http://bit.ly/2cvAtdv)
