February 23, 2021 0 By autotimesnews

The debut of this brutal SUV took place in the UAE, where the IDEX 2021 international defense exhibition is taking place.

The Armored Light Tactical Cargo Truck is a tall off-road vehicle with a simple geometric appearance. It has four seats and a large canopy trunk. Here you can transport cargo weighing up to three tons or ten soldiers in full armor.

This light armored car is set in motion by a 225-horsepower diesel engine, working in conjunction with an 8-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system. This army SUV was rewarded for getting around even in the most impassable places. Responsible for this are reliable independent suspension, traction control, special tires, etc.

The new KIA SUV, by the way, also has an unarmored version. Such an SUV could well enter the civilian market. Only here in Russia it is definitely not worth waiting for.

In parallel, the Koreans presented a new platform in the form of a frame with a power plant and transmission.

This is a demo version that tells about the main advantage of the new architecture – its versatility. Based on this “cart”, you can create a whole family of vehicles for the defense industry. Possible modifications include a mobile command post and a mobile communications center.
