Czech Company TATRA showcases its new brand new armoured four door cab at Eurosatory 2016.
At Eurosatory 2016, the Cezch Company TATRA showcases its new brand new armoured four door cab for TATRA FORCE truck. When, in 2004, the Koprivnice truck maker introduced the T815-7 model range, it was evident by the cab design that emphasis was placed on additional ballistics protection for the crew. Even the excellent mobility features of TATRA vehicles cannot protect the crew against the danger of projectiles or improvised explosive systems.

The design, which is primarily intended for the armed forces, offers a wider potential application. A four door cab can be used for anti-riot vehicles and rescue vehicles, and even its use in civil applications seems to be feasible, as their crews in the countries of the Middle East are often exposed to the danger of explosive booby-trap systems or sniper fire.

Thanks to the new four-door armoured cab, the TATRA FORCE model range is successfully expanding its potential and use in standard logistics vehicles, chassis for weapons systems, specialized vehicles for the technical support services, and other versions.

Simple flat surfaces, sharp edges, ready grips – at that time these were basic preconditions forthe implementation of additional crew protection. The armoured plates and special armoured glass could thusprovide the crew with a higher level of safety compared to a standardcab. This armouring complies with the STANAG 4569 standard, where, in the case of TATRA, any cab certification proceeds pursuant to the latest edition of STANAG 4569 Edition 3 and AEP-55.

The system is relatively affordable and avai lable, variable and easy to implement, and virtually any vehicle from the T815-7 model range, today designated TATRA FORCE, can feature it. With the development of the security situation in the world, it is necessary to protect crews by ever more sophisticated means. A very effective way is the use of composite materials in combination with the cab equipment, where they are capable of very effectively absorbing the energy released by the explosion of improvised ex plosive systems or resist the penetration of larger calibre bullets. This version of a crew protection was applied to the TATRA chassis in cooperation with foreign supplier.

One of the first vehicles that stood out thanks to this project was a four-wheeled logistics vehicle – the dropside truck. This vehicle features crew protection against bullet and explosive systems pursuant to STANAG 4569. The armoured cab has a completely new and original design, which includes integrated components of mine explosion protection and has a modular armour system that can be composed of multiple layers of different ballistics resistance.

The development of ballistics and mine protection systems was based on the fundamental needs of the crew for the highest level of protection, while placing emphasis on the crew’s comfort and cab utility features. The cab is equipped with a hydro-pneumatic door opener and three seats that can absorb pressure wave energy from the explosion of mines. Due to its specific characteristics, this vehicle is especially suited for expeditionary forces and foreign missions.

The developments within defence projects in TATRA TRUCKS focus on a larger cockpit and its enlargement to contain up to 5 people (1+4), and in 2015, the first “long” armoured cab was built, undergoing a number of challenging tests. Again, we start here from tried and tested cooperation with the Israeli specialist PLASAN, who supplies kits for the new vehicle that will turn the assembly line at Koprivnice into a fourdoor cab for a larger crew.
