South Africa's DCD Protected Mobility has developed a compact three ton-payload utility truck in co-operation with Histomart using commercial driveline components.
The Oribi is built on an adaptive, modular space-frame chassis with a three- or six-seat enclosed cab - which can be given ballistic protection - and mission-specific rear body. Alternatively, an open two-seat cab design can be used.
The vehicle uses a cab-over-engine layout for space efficiency and will come in three wheelbase lengths for different roles. With its wheels placed near the corners, it provides considerable agility, with 48° approach, 44° departure, and 135° hump angles, and the ability to climb a 45° slope.
