Bogdan receives Ukrainian contracts
Bogdan Motors has received two new contracts from the Ukraine Ministry of Defence to supply military trucks and medical vehicles for the Ukrainian armed forces, the company announced on 29 January.
The first contract includes the delivery of Bogdan 6317 multi-purpose trucks powered by Weichai Power’s 9.7L V6, 380hp turbocharged diesel engine. The truck is capable of carrying 11t of cargo or 50 persons. It can also be used for towing trailers in rugged terrain.
The Bogdan 6317 is gradually replacing Ukraine’s existing Ural-375, Ural-4320, ZiL-131 trucks and Kamaz vehicles.
Under the second contract, the company will deliver modernised Bogdan 2251 medical vehicles. The modernised vehicles have a restructured interior, new heating system and an additional heater for the fuel flow system.
Bogdan 2251 is gradually replacing the UAZ-452 vehicles. The vehicles are designed to transport or evacuate the wounded from military medical units and field hospitals to other medical facilities.
