Canada announced that it had selected Renault Trucks Défence as a supplier of 8 × 8 logistics vehicles for its army. The contract worth over 700 million dollars provides for the delivery of 1500 Renault Kerax trucks, of which an unbroken amount will receive armored cabs.

Tactical truck Kerax 8 × 8 company Renault

The base trucks will be manufactured by Renault in France, then they will be delivered to Canada for final debugging and system setup, which will be performed by the local company Pevost. Machines must obtain all necessary equipment for the handling of goods, such as cranes and pallet trucks (pallets). Oshkosh, Mercedes Benz and Rheinmetall-MAN also fought for this contract.

The Renault Kerax 8 × 8 truck in the version with armored cab has tons of 42 weight, it is equipped with an 520 hp engine. In a typical configuration, it has a length of 10,2 meter and a width of 2,5 meter.

The KERAX family of military-purpose trucks and tractors is based on commercial vehicles adapted to the specific needs of the armed forces. Their advantage lies in the low cost of the life cycle of commercial vehicles, and, with their huge payload, they are ideal for logistic tasks. The family includes a variety of options: personnel transporters, water and fuel tanks, dump trucks, cargo handling systems, vans, tow trucks and weapons systems platforms.

KERAX trucks can also be modified to perform tactical tasks, which is largely facilitated by increased off-road maneuverability, tactical air transportability or armored cab (ballistic and mine protection).

More than 900 military-designed KERAX vehicles are in use throughout the world, including more than 400 units in the French armed forces.

    good truck / platform 8x8, no better, no worse than other western models ....

    in Russia and Belarus, no worse ((one problem with automatic transmission, and components for foreign-made diesels)))

    That feeling. that Canadians will use this car as a timber truck. Why do they need so many cars for the army? Probably there is a lot of American sludge in the country, and here also French.

      more like a container ship, with a container loading / loading system, a logistics / supply vehicle .....

      on the bottom photo with: "Multilift" system for loading, unloading and transporting containers...that reduces transportation costs at times and increases safety .. when there are only containers in the convoy ((including fuel trucks))) bumahaheds simply don’t know which car to shoot at))) the first targets were always precisely the fuel conveyors and BC. ...

      "Multilift" can be installed on various chassis of trucks, for example MAZ, KamAZ, Scania, MAN, VOLVO, Ford, Iveco and others, chassis 4x4,6x6,8x8, selected depending on the size and carrying capacity of the "Multilift" ....

    The logical decision. Allows you to maximize the transition to one basic platform. That, with its own low cost of the life cycle of the machine, will reduce the overall costs of the army.

      Now he was carrying a more or less situation, where the troops collide with the database, there are enough protected cars, and new models are already on the way!

    I have long wanted to read and see, only for the Russian army, the multi-lift system needs to be implemented and not only for supply vehicles, for example, batch reloading of a radar station, stationary or temporary radar, tm

    American IAC purchased Renault for a long time. And in Canada, I don’t seem to have my own trucks, I remember ... and apart from Hayes, I don’t remember something, but he disappeared a long time ago. Kenwords like American. But we really need armored trucks, we need to protect military drivers.

    what makes the "frog device" cool is the armored cabin ... Our KAMAZ trucks, but the Urals do not have a sin to adopt ..
