    Notwithstanding controversy, Tatra trucks produced by the state-owned BEML are taking part in the summer trials conducted by the army for procuring heavy trucks to ferry missile and artillery systems.

    The army had issued a global tender for procuring over 255 heavy eight-wheeled trucks in 2010 and a few indigenous companies along with BEML are competing, sources said here.

    The summer trials are being held in desert and hot and dusty conditions at different locations across the country after winter trials of the participating companies were held late last year, army sources said.

    The army has carried out trials of six-wheeled trucks and Tatra is among the six companies including Tata and Ashok Leyland taking part in it. The tender issued in 2009 for buying around 1240 trucks was open only for Indian manufacturers.

    The army had been procuring such trucks from BEML but after the changes in General Staff Qualitative Requirements (GSQR) in 2008, it was decided that they would be procured through multi vendor tenders.

    The decision in this regard was taken in a meeting of the Defence Acquisition Council in 2008 chaired by Defence Minister AK Antony.

    After the decision for procurement of trucks through multi-vendor tenders, the Army has inducted Tatra trucks in limited quantities for its urgent requirements.

    The army has been procuring Tatra trucks since 1986 and more than 7,000 of them are in service with the armed forces and other defence organisations.

    Tatra hit the spotlight after Army Chief Gen VK Singh alleged that he was offered a Rs 14 crore bribe to clear 600 "sub-standard" trucks.

    The Last one is the 8X8 super stallion by leyland, also the second last one is a 8X6 not a 8X8.
    The TATA development extensively makes use of Daewoo tech along with Cummins engines and domestic developments done at Jamshedpur as well.

    Sir, my guess would be the six firms are
    1)TATA
    2)ASHOK LEYLAND
    3)TATRA BEML
    4)MAHINDRA-NAVISTAR
    5)EICHER
    6)VECTRA-KAMAZ

    We might also have entries by AMW ,bajaj-MAN and BHARATBENZ!

    UralAZ (or probably Ural India) came up during the last fracas with Tatra. I believe they will be participating as well.

    A few further details on the other contenders i believe that might enter the fray through JV's in India.

    [​IMG]
    The NAVISTAR ATX-8 might come in through the JV with Mahindra. The only kink is that the ATX is developed by a JV between NAVISTAR AND the original TATRA(not RK Rishi's franchise)
    [​IMG]
    We might see BAJAJ bring in the MAN CAT SX A18X8 or something similar.
    [​IMG]
    EICHER has a 8x6 that could be further developed into a 8X8.
    [​IMG]
    Mercedes could try to bring in the ACTROS 8X8 through BHARATBENZ
