TATRA TRUCKS a.s. is participating in the international defence exhibition EUROSATORY 2014, which will is held in Paris, France, between June 16 and June 20, 2014.

It will be our great pleasure to welcome you at our stand and demonstrate to you the fi rst 4×4 logistic truck with armoured cab, which meets the STANAG 3 – 3a/3b Level, and also a container carrier T815-7 8×8 with medical ISO 1C container produced by Karbox s.r.o.

Special TATRA vehicles equipped with a unique chassis design with a central backbone tube and independently suspended swinging half axles allow the transportation of heavy loads and high speeds in the most difficult terrain. Thousands of TATRA vehicles with payload capacities ranging from 10 to 33 tons and with 4×4, 6×6, 8×8, 10×10 and 12×12 drive systems serve in peace-keeping missions and combat operations around the world. TATRA trucks are mostly used as cargo/troop carriers and also as carriers of special superstructures for munitions, military electronics, radar systems and other sensitive materials and equipment. Trucks of the 815-7 product line can be transported in the C-130 Hercules aircraft.

Due to their cab design, these vehicles can be very easy armoured under cost-efficient and user-friendly conditions. TATRA TRUCKS is going to introduce a higher level of armouring at the EUROSATORY 2014 international exhibition. It will be the very first logistic 4×4 all-wheel-drive vehicle with an armoured cab of Level 2 – 3a/3b, optionally Level 3 – 3a/3b, STANAG 4569. The armoured cabin was designed from the very beginning with an integrated blast management system and multi-layered scalable armour system. By putting users at the centre of the development process and creating a protection system around them, the cabin offers very high levels of protection at low weight without compromising on comfort or usability. The new cab is equipped with power-assisted door opening and energy absorbing blast seats. The cabin was developed together with Plasan Sasa.

Due to supporting systems, like the central tire inflating system (CTIS), wheels equipped with tactical tires 16.00R20 with beadlocks and run flats, a possibility to change the clearance on the fly, a maximum speed of 115 kmph and gradeability of 100% at 19,000 kg GVW, the vehicle is prepared for logistic missions in exposed areas. The new armoured cabin is also available with other configurations – from 6×6 up to 12×12.

Our stand will be located in the outdoor area, stand No. D320.
