Mowag Duro is the tactical military vehicle that will be designed to improve military training and equipment to enhance the army’s operational readiness.

The carriers will be procured under Armaments Program 2010 and will be used in six of the army’s infantry battalions, two fast-reaction infantry companies, the Swiss intelligence battalion and few units to infantry schools.

Missions to be carried out by the vehicles include transportation of military supplies, and reconnaissance and surveillance of infrastructure.
