The Finnish SISU High Mobility Vehicle Series

The Finnish SISU High Mobility Vehicle Series

The Finnish SISU High Mobility Vehicle Series was introduced in 2006 by SISU. It is a brand new range of off-road trucks and all models can be protected ballistically and against land mines.

The series has been designed and developed in co-operation with the Finnish Defence Forces. SISU off-road vehicles are suitable for all kinds of road and terrain transportation of containers. The truck can be equipped with a demountable platform, where the hook lift is integrated directly into the truck frame. To keep the system simple and functional, SISU has developed an independent hydraulic system to the truck.

Quality standards are based on both ISO 9001 and AQAP 110 requirements. SISU Auto also has the quality certification no. 44 of the Finnish Defence Forces.The SISU off-road truck has excellent handling properties. Even an untrained driver can manage the vehicle if needed. All critical components are located in well protected places. For example the cooling radiators are mounted behind the protected cabin.

The use of standard components contributes to economical operating costs under normal conditions and assures continued operation and maintenance in crisis. The top-of-the-range model is the 10×10  vehicle, which can be used as a platform for  a 26-metre bridge, for instance – a much lighter alternative than a tank.
