The Finnish truck manufacturer Sisu Auto has revealed a recently developed GTP 4×4 armoured troops carrier vehicle at Auto2018 exhibition in Latvia.
According to the company, the new Sisu GTP 4×4 armoured troops carrier vehicle can carry up to 4,500kg of payload in off-road conditions, subject to armour levels. The vehicle is equipped with independent suspension system and differential locks in each wheel, providing SISU GTP with mobility characteristics that are necessary beyond the paved roads, in severe off-road terrain, whatever the operational environment might be.
Sisu Auto has gained expertise of armouring solutions during the long history of armoured vehicle deliveries intended for the harshest operational duties. In addition to the vast number of SISU Pasi vehicles, armoured SISU 8×8 trucks are also field proven, serving currently in UN led operation in Lebanon, and already earlier in NATO led operation in Afghanistan.
Sisu GTP’s separate backbone and crew body structures result in unmatched versatility, enabling numerous variants for different operational uses, as well as easy maintainability even in field conditions. Interchangeable components and maintainability are also important factors in Life Cycle Support economy.
The crew survivability of SISU GTP is based on this expertise and knowledge. Modular vehicle structure allows operational-specific protection solutions: Protection level can be increased with an additional add-on kit or replacement components as necessary.
With the new SISU GTP, Sisu Auto is ready to respond when Mobility, Versatility and Survivability are operational requirements, and suitable vehicle solution is called for.
