    That doesn’t seem to be a very large or powerful motor to haul 10 plus gear and armor. The days of slow military vehicles is dead

    • Nick says:

      It says 6100 kg (13450 lbs) combat weight in STANAG 1 configuration. 195/6100=32 hp/ton. Or 35 hp/ton in B6 configuration. Check some other 4×4 armored vehicles and compare.

  2. JB says:

    20 ton truck powered by a corola motor. Smart.

    Can’t they beef up the motors? Cummins are common and reliable. It’s not going to change the price point much.

  3. Nick says:

    It says 6100 kg (13450 lbs) combat (gross) weight, powered by 4.5L V8 diesel. Not sure about 20 ton and Corolla motor remark. Re-motoring means re-transmissioning, re-ECMing, re-harnessing etc. Add 100% to the price. Still better, compare Cummins ISF range and 1VD-FTV first.
