Introduction about 6x6 Cargo Truck / Troop Carrier / Armoured Cab:-

A medium class all-wheel-drive (6x6) off-road logistic truck that, unlike other TATRA trucks and chassis-cabs, is based on the standard chassis concept - rigid portal axles and a ladder frame. The truck was developed according to specifications given by the Czech Army for a replacement of their aging fleet of medium trucks. 

As it was required, this high mobility off-road truck has been designed at the borderline of medium and heavy truck classes (N2/N3) and is designated for transporting superstructures up to 5.7 ton, and also for towing of trailers on both paved and unpaved roads, as well as in difficult off-road conditions. 


The chassis with 6.5 ton capacity portal axles and bolted ladder frame can carry special superstructures, bodies, shelters or standard containers. Central tyre inflation system operating on the fly is a standard feature. 

The 3-seat cab has an HVAC unit, armoured floor protecting the crew from fragments and splinters from grenades and anti-personnel mines. The pillars and the roof are reinforced and modified to accept an MG mount in the manhole. The 177 kW 6-cylinder in-line Renault engine meets Euro 3 emission standards.
