The Kerax family of militarized rigid and tractor trucks is based on commercial vehicles which are adapted to the specific needs of armed forces. They are ideally suited for logistic missions and benefit from the low lifecycle costs of commercial vehicles. The Kerax is also able to be modified at a larger extent for tactical missions with improved off-road mobility and tactical air transport capacities.
The Kerax 8×8 “Heavy Duty” (HD) is a tactical tractor able to transport a main battle tank or any heavy equipment to the battlefield. It is fitted for a protected cab (ballistic and mine kits) and a self defence weapon system.
