Another batch of all-terrain trucks «Bogdan 6317» has been sent to the armed forces of Ukraine. Executing the state defense order, the «Car-assembly plant №2», located in Cherkasy, has handed over the certificates for the trucks to the representatives of the Ministry of defense of Ukraine. Till the end of the current year “Bogdan” plans to supply 200 “Bogdan 6317” trucks more.

 
In general, «Bogdan 6317» line of trucks has been positively assessed by the operators. According to head of the group №1347 of the Defense Ministry’s military representative office, lieutenant-colonel Volodymyr Kucherenko, the Army is in need of such general purpose trucks. The new high-quality vehicles are replacing the outdated Soviet-produced equipment.
«Bogdan 6317» is a modern general purpose vehicle. It is equipped with a high-capacity 9.7L V6 Weichai Power turbocharged diesel engine developing 380 hp. These engines made it possible for Ukrainian manufacturers to improve the vehicles’ performance as well as to refuse from Russian-produced components.
 
The new truck has a 1447 kilometers fuel distance and is able to make 85 km/h carrying 11 tons of cargo. It is capable of transporting 50 persons.

Besides, production facilities of the majority of soviet military vehicles (except «KrAZ») are located on the territory of the aggressor-state.
