ANOTHER BATCH OF 4x4 «BOGDAN 6317» TRUCKS TO BE DELIVERED TO THE ARMED FORCESS IN THE NEAREST FUTURE. PHOTO

Fulfilling the state defense order, the Cherkasy branch of the «Bogdan Motors» Company has produced yet another batch of «Bogdan 6317» off-roaders. In the nearest time the vehicles will be adopted by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
 
«Bogdan 6317» is a multi-purpose vehicle equipped with a 9,7L turbocharged Weichai Power V6 diesel engine developing 280 hp. These engines made it possible for Ukrainian manufacturers to completely refuse from Russian-produced details.
 
The truck is capable of making 85 km/h carrying 11 tons of cargo. Its cruising range is 1447 km. The vehicle could transport up to 50 persons in a specifically equipped compartment.
 
«Bogdan 6317» will gradually replace «Ural-375», «Ural-4320», «ZiL-131» and the military modifications of «KamAZ» vehicles designed yet in 1960-ies and 1970-ies. The majority of old soviet and modern military vehicles (except «KrAZ») continue being manufactured in Russia, which is now an aggressor-state. Thus, taking into consideration modern realities, the latest vehicles and equipment for the national Army must be supplied by the domestic producer.
 
It should be reminded that at the end of 2017 the Ministry of Defense has successfully tested and approved the «Bogdan 63172» vehicle. According to the assessments, the vehicle «showed proper level of technical preparation, which enables fulfillment of the tasks assigned». Therefore, the six-wheeler has been recommended to «be adopted by the Armed Forces of Ukraine during the special period».
