The T700 axle system, jointly developed by Texelis of France (Stand N7-310) and Irish company Timoney (Stand N7-311), is entering production following an extensive testing programme.
The first customer to select the T700 is Yugoimport, which chose the unit for the Milosh 4x4 launched earlier this year.
Yugoimport has placed a contract for 14 vehicle sets, with delivery of the first production units during this month.
The Milosh is designed as a troop carrier or liaison vehicle and has high mobility levels, as well as good levels of protection. Yugoimport has received an order for Milosh from the Serbian Ministry of the Interior for the counterterrorism team.
The T700 is designed to meet market demand for a robust, lightweight solution for military and heavy commercial 4x4s with a maximum width of 2.5m. The configuration incorporates Texelis’s existing proven wheel-end and differential components with a new suspension design based on Timoney’s proven double wishbone concept to provide a fully integrated solution.
