Iveco designs, manufactures, and markets a broad range of light, medium and heavy commercial vehicles, off-road trucks, city and intercity buses and coaches as well as special vehicles for applications such as fire fighting, off-road missions, defence and civil protection. Iveco employs over 27,687 people and runs 27 production units in 16 Countries in the world using excellent technologies developed in 5 research centres. Besides Europe, the company operates in China, Russia, Libya, Australia, Argentina, Brazil, and South Africa. More than 5,900 service outlets in over 100 Countries guarantee technical support wherever in the world an Iveco vehicle is at work.
IVECO Defence Vehicles
Based in Bolzano, Northern Italy, IVECO Defence Vehicles is well known for its ability to apply advanced automotive innovations and leading edge protection solutions to practical and purpose-built designs, resulting in a full range of military trucks, armoured vehicles, protected and multirole vehicles.
At present it is estimated that over 30,000 IVECO vehicles are in military service worldwide.
Developed to counter the evolving threat, the multirole vehicle range encompasses 4 × 4 personnel carrier and patrol vehicles which combine exceptional mobility, agility and terrain accessibility with high levels of protection against both ballistic and mine attack. They are equally effective in both peacekeeping and counter insurgency missions.
Light multi-role vehicles (LMVs)
The LMV is a purpose built military vehicle which nonetheless benefits from the use of many commercial components. Rugged and highly mobile, it is designed as a chassis cab which permits the installation of many different modules including a cargo platform, an ambulance and a weapon carrier.
Anti-mine protection has also been given a high priority, with the over-riding aim being to ensure the survival of the crew. Since LMV’s first deployment to Afghanistan, IVECO’s integrated solution has ensured the survival of all of its occupants. whenever the vehicle has been attacked.
The LMV was selected for front line duties by the following armies: Italy (1260 units), UK (401 units), Spain (120 units), Norway (60 units), Belgium (440 units), Croatia (10 units), the Czech Republic (21 units) and, most recently, Austria (150 units).
Medium-protected vehicles (MPVs)
To meet the demand for heavily protected utility and multipurpose vehicles able to provide high levels of ballistic, mine and IED protection, IVECO Defence Vehicles worked jointly with KMW to develop a new family of vehicles known as MPV (Multi purpose Vehicles) which fits between its highly successful Light Multirole Vehicle (LMV) and its Centauro AIFV 8 × 8 armoured wheeled vehicles.
Not only the MPV is among the most protected vehicles in its category, but it also has one of the best volume/protection ratio. In current operations mobility does not mean only the ability to move on difficult terrain, but also to be able to drive through narrow roads and urban areas. MPV has been designed with this requirement in mind, optimising terrain accessibility whilst ensuring that life cycle costs are reduced through the maximum use of COTS assemblies.
Iveco Defence Vehicles also has access to the full Iveco range of panel vans and light trucks through to transporters capable of moving loads in excess of 75t. Available as 4 × 2, 4 × 4, 6 × 4, 6 × 6, 8 × 4 and 8 × 8 these vehicles fulfil logistic roles for a wide range of defence forces from the rear echelon up to the forward areas.
One of the characteristics of current operations is that there is no front line, with logistic troops as likely to be attacked as combat arms. In recognition of this, Iveco Defence Vehicles has worked to develop a class leading protected cab which can be fitted to Iveco’s heavy duty 6 × 6 and 8 × 8 Trakker chassis. The result is a robust, highly mobile but cost effective logistic vehicle which can operate even in high threat areas.
IVECO Defence Vehicles offers a full range of battle proven, powerful and capable 4 × 4, 6 × 6 and 8 × 8 purpose designed military logistic vehicles to provide tactical support to any military operation in the most hostile environmental conditions. The whole range can be equipped with a new generation of add on armour kit, achieving a unique combination of performance, payload and protection to support any military operation in the most hostile environmental conditions.
In addition to its logistic and protected vehicle range, IVECO has also manufactures two families of wheeled armoured vehicles. The first of these, the 8 × 8 Centauro family, includes weapon platforms mounting 105 and 120mm guns, an infantry fighting vehicle mounting a 25mm cannon, an APC, a command vehicle and specialist repair and recovery variants. The second family is the 4 × 4 and 6 × 6 Puma reconnaissance and liaison family, which has seen service in demanding operational conditions.

ANY PIC OF YASOOB TRUCK?
HOW IS IT AS COMPARED TO TATA??
i never heared of this yasoob truck from where pakistan was importing it and what in replacement pakistan buyed after they ditched the deal
Yasoob (6 x 6) 6,000 kg truck (Pakistan), Trucks
The decision to proceed with the development of a family of military and commercial trucks was taken by the Pakistan government in July 1989. The first two prototypes of the resultant military truck, named Yasoob after the fastest horse of the Prophet, were handed over to the Pakistan Army for trials during 1990. These vehicles had 40 per cent local content, which increased when full production commenced. Components for all major vehicle units, such as the engine, transmission, axles and transfer, are manufactured under licence (with provision for buy-back arrangements). The first production unit was delivered to the Pakistan Army in 1994.Development of a Yasoob 4 × 4 Mark II model was completed. This model had a forward control cab manufactured by the then Leyland Trucks Limited of the UK. Apart from the standard cargo body, recovery, tanker, mobile workshop and long wheelbase versions were scheduled. As of 1999 Trans Mobile Limited (manufacturers of the Yasoob range) were understood to have ceased trading. No production figures for the Yasoob range were officially released, however it is understood that around 450 (6 × 6) and 250 (4 × 4) models were delivered between 1993-95.
The Yasoob (6 × 6) 6,000 kg truck was designed as an all-purpose vehicle intended for general logistic purposes that can also be used to tow artillery or trailers. The standard model is a cargo truck with a maximum highway load capacity of 12,000 kg (6,000 kg off-road). Layout is conventional, with the 8.3 litre diesel engine at the front, a two-door, three-seat, fully enclosed cab in the centre and the cargo area with high drop sides and a tailgate at the rear. The cargo area can be covered by bows and a tarpaulin, with the bows stowed behind the cab when not in use. Bench seats can be fitted for troop carrying.The frame uses rolled channel construction with six reinforced cross members. The front and rear axles have spiral bevel hub reduction.Three wheelbase lengths (front axle to rear bogie) were stated as available: 4.3 m, 4.6 m and 5.5 m. The standard cargo version having the 4.6 m wheelbase chassis but there was also to be a lengthened cargo bed variant that would utilise the longer 5.5 m chassis. Van-bodied variants (for command post or mobile stores functions) were proposed for all three wheelbase lengths. Other variants in the Yasoob range were to include a dump truck, a wrecker and a tractor truck for towing loads up to 25,000 kg; all three using the 4.3 m wheelbase chassis. A fuel or water tanker version (4.6 m chassis) and a bridging equipment carrier (5.5 m chassis) were also proposed.Commercial
