Belgian MoD orders 879 off-road CF Military trucks, for delivery from 2022-2025.

Netherlands-based DAF is supplying 879 all-wheel-drive off-road CF Military vehicles to the Belgian MoD under a €268.88 million contract.

DAF was selected ahead of six other bidders in the competitive tender.

The MoD also signed a multi-year contract with DAF for technical assistance.

Delivery of the first vehicles (based on a chassis from Czech firm Tatra) is planned for 2022 with the last trucks to be produced in 2025.

Belgium will receive 636 twin-axle trucks with 4x4 driveline, for use as general cargo and logistics vehicles, plus 243 four-axle 8x8 utility trucks.

The vehicles will be powered by PACCAR MX-11 (4x4) and MX-13 (8x8) engines with outputs from 410-460hp.
