Within the framework of the public contract from last year, a total of 16 pieces of Tatra military off-road vehicles of the Tatra T 815-7T3R31.411 6x6.1R type (for CZK 163,423,968 excluding VAT), specially modified and equipped for the required purposes of the Czech Armed Forces according to the specification of the public contract "Transport vehicle for RBS-70 NG", are being delivered to the Army of the Czech Republic. The aim is to ensure the mobility of the new anti-aircraft units and at the same time to unify the life cycle of the missile set with the service life of the chassis platform for the entire period of use in the Czech Armed Forces.
The new vehicles were supplied by TATRA TRUCKS a.s. The introduced Tatra vehicles meet not only the Czech defence standards but also international NATO standards and in various modifications form the basis of the ground logistic support of the Czech Armed Forces. In this context, the Czech Armed Forces has established its own technical and repair facilities with trained personnel capable of fully ensuring the operability of this equipment.
