Oy Sisu Auto Ab has delivered the first SISU GTP 4×4 vehicles ordered by the Finnish Defence Forces. The delivery belongs to the acquisition of the SISU GTP 4×4 test series published by the Finnish Army in summer 2020, the purpose of which is to collect information on vehicle capability and operability for the future needs of the Defence Forces’ mobility both in Finland and in crisis management tasks.
The first delivery includes two different armored vehicle configurations, a five-seater general purpose vehicle and a ten-seater armored personnel carrier vehicle.
The SISU GTP vehicle family is modular and therefore easily variable for different operational tasks. The vehicles have congruent backbones, and the crew body structures are interchangeable. Thanks to this truly modular design, the delivery of vehicles in task-specific configurations is quick and economical.
With the vehicles now delivered, the Army will implement a testing program, after which the other four vehicles of the test series, together with operation and field maintenance instructions and spare parts kits shall be delivered later this year.
