AMZ-Kutno unveiled the TUR 7 4Γ—4 armoured vehicle at the International Defence Industry Exhibition MSPO 2022 held in Kielce from 6 to 9 September. The TUR 7 was shown in a light medical transporter configuration and joins the large TUR family of vehicles produced by AMZ-Kutno.

The medical transporter version can carry up to seven personnel, including the driver and a wounded passenger placed on a stretcher. Passengers can disembark the vehicle from the rear exit through a pair of hinged armoured doors. The vehicle is configurable, and as is typical of its class, weaponry can be mounted on a remotely operated weapon station integrated on its roof.

The vehicle is powered by a 285 hp, six-cylinder engine with an Allison six-speed automatic gearbox, producing 970 Nm of torque, and a range of up to 600 km on tarmac. The 12-tonne vehicle has STANAG 4569 Level 1 protection against small-arms fire with ammunition up to 7.62Γ—51 mm in calibre. Its hull provides Level 3A protection against a mine explosion of up to 8 kg of TNT detonated under any of the four wheels.
