Maizlin, the company’s former president says "The idea of building a military-style truck for the consumer market started in 2006". He spent nearly two decades in the military industry, focusing much of his efforts on armour.

They built the first one in King City, north of Toronto, and brought it to a car show in Las Vegas in 2008.

“The interior is fully customizable,” says Tim Chapman, the president of Conquest Vehicles, on a tour of the warehouse in north Toronto in late June.

There are four trucks in the warehouse at the moment, including a nearly completed redesigned model that is about a half-metre longer and 20 centimetres wider than the original.

Chapman says they sold the truck to a man in Ukraine who may have acted as a broker with the Yanukovych family or simply resold it to them. The truck has been repainted in camouflage colours and is being used in the conflict.

Conquest is owned by Elgner Group Investments Ltd., a private company made up of entrepreneurs. Chapman says they have big plans for the future.

A group of Chinese investors is considering buying a few, he says.
