New Arquus 8x8 truck introduced

11th October 2019 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Arquus has introduced its new 8x8 logistics truck, the first in a new range of logistics vehicles developed for the military market.

The vehicle’s 8x8 base has been specifically designed for military applications. The vehicle has an electronic management system for the driveline, called the Automatic Traction Control. This system automatically switches on and off the forward axles’ motricity and manages the differential locks on all axles.

The vehicle has been designed for mobility with limited tyre wear and fuel consumption in order to reduce maintenance and support requirements.

Operational mission sets include logistics and strategic transport, tank or systems transport, as well as vehicle repair missions.

Depending on user requirements, the vehicle can be supplied with two different cabin versions: unprotected, and protected against ballistic and mine threats according to STANAG 4569.

The 8x8 can accommodate a ring-mounted weapon, or a remote-controlled weapon system. It can also accommodate new generation information and communication systems, including being Scorpion-equipment ready.
