Pinzgauer 718 6x6 light tactical vehicle

New Zealand's Army has received first 20 Pinzgauer 718 6x6 light tactical vehicles out of the total of 321 to be delivered.

The contract, which is worth $66.4 million, was awarded to the Land Rover company of Britain. The contract envisages delivery of vehicles in 13 versions, viz.: 122 command vehicles, 95 general purpose trucks, 68 armed transporters, 15 vehicles with armoured sides and 8 ambulances.

23 command vehicles and 37 transporters out of the above versions will be developed on the basis of a newly-developed armoured variant of the vehicle.

The Pinzgauer Model 718 cross-country vehicles were developed by the Steyr-Daimler-Puch company of Austria more than 30 years ago by request of the Swiss Army. In 1987, they were upgraded. In particular, they were fitted with a 104 hp diesel engine with a maximum torque of 195 Nm.
