DURO

DURO is a well protected, highly mobile, off-road tactical transport vehicle, which is in operation worldwide. It is designed for military requirements and applications.

More than 4,000 vehicles are in service.

DURO is a three-axle, multi-purpose vehicle, powered by a six-cylinder diesel engine. The permanent all-wheel drive is controlled by a five-speed automatic gearbox and a two-range transfer case.

All axle and inter-axle differentials are TORSEN self-locking differentials. DeDion-type axles are suspended with coil springs. The patented stabiliser system allows axle twisting in off-road situations, and prevents body rolling during on-road operations.

The stabiliser system and self-locking TORSEN differentials, together with the long wheel travel, provide outstanding mobility for on-road and off-road driving.

DURO has a modular protection concept. The protection level of cabin and shelter can be adapted by means of add-on armour kits to provide protection against various threats.

Due to the large protected utility volume, various mission kits can easily be integrated into the vehicle in accordance with customer-specific requirements.

DURO vehicles have become the preferred multi-purpose vehicle platform for various armed forces globally, fulfilling various tasks, such as logistics vehicles, troop transporters, ambulances, EOD vehicles, mobile C3 stations and weapon tractors.
