Rolls-Royce will supply 500 MTU series 106 engines to Polish vehicle manufacturer Jelcz, the company announced on 21 September.

The type 6R 106 TD21 engines will power Jelcz's four-wheel drive 442.32 all-terrain vehicles for the Polish armed forces.

The first of these engines are expected to be delivered in 2017.

Nine hundred of the series 106 engines are already powering vehicles in service with the Polish Army.

The type 6R 106 TD21 is a six-cylinder engine. It produces 240kW (326HP), is unaffected by electro-magnetic pulses and can run on aviation fuel if necessary.

Knut Müller, head of marine and government business at MTU, said: ‘We are delighted at having succeeded, once again, in convincing Jelcz of the benefits of MTU engines. The fact that Jelcz has now ordered a total of 1,400 of our engines for its vehicles is proof positive of the superb, close collaboration between our two companies.’
