It is part of the tactical trucks for special and logistic use, used by the Italian Army since 2002. Built by Astra Company (now part of Iveco), the Logistic Tactical Vehicles are characterized by strength, reliability and above all mobility. Many productions have been designed, based on two main groups: the SM (Standard Military) and the SMH (Standard Military Heavy). For both groups, there are versions with 4x4, 6x6, 8x8 traction that maintain different parts in common in order to facilitate the maintenance and the repair. The cockpit can be normal or lowered, with a shape suitable for rail transport and air transport. It can be transported in case of normal cabin operating on the centralized system of tire pressure. It is also possible to adopt an armour kit for the cabin.
