DURO

The DURO is a modular platform concept for a family of 4x4 and 6x6 vehicles. It is a well-protected (in the armored version), highly-mobile, off-road tactical transport vehicle based on the proven De-Dion axle, one that was specially developed for military applications. The DURO was deployed in Afghanistan and is a highly mobile and versatile platform for all kinds of application.

The DURO family provides payload capacities from 3.5 tons to 6.5 tons and offers a large load capacity with the different function modules. These include NBC, Reconnaissance, Ambulance and Armored Personnel Carrier. Depending on the mission role, 4x4 and 6x6 versions are available in a chassis/cab configuration only, or with the function module. The cabin is available in armored or non-armored configurations.

Vehicle Concept
The DURO and EAGLE family of vehicles use the same chassis and drive train components. They are multi-purpose vehicles, with a chassis/cab in 4x4 and 6x6 versions, and offer a variety of interchangeable function modules. Unmatched in their payload/gross vehicle weight ratio, they are in service with various armed forces.

Survivability (Protected version only)
DURO has validated ballistic, mine protection and Improvised Explosive Device (IED) protection. This includes mine protected seats and all the engineering expertise of a company focused on armored vehicles.

Mobility
Mobility is enhanced and unmatched thanks to the unique De-Dion suspension with its large axle articulation and high wheel travel; the roll stabilizer system which allows axle twisting and restricts body rolling, Self-locking TORSEN differentials; High torque CUMMINS diesel engine with Allison automatic transmission, and, finally, safe on-road handling with exceptional performance.

Mission Roles
Armored/non-armored Troop Carrier, Logistics, Military Police/Anti-riot, Flat bed, Command & Communication, EOD, NBC Laboratory, Armored Ambulance vehicles.

Integrated Logistic Support
Through-life support – partnership, high system availability, ease of maintenance, low life-cycle cost.
