Army all-wheel drive trucks Tatra T815, already known in Ukraine as carriers of the RK-360MTs Neptune anti-ship missile system, can perform a variety of functions. For example, to work as part of powerful aviation tankers.

Recently, the military airport in the Czech town of Kbela was replenished with two brand new ATZ – Tatra T815 (6×6) truck tractors with tank semi-trailers.

Each “barrel” holds 36,000 liters of fuel. The tractor is equipped with powerful pumping equipment of the well-known German manufacturer Alfons Haar, capable of refueling two transport aircraft at once – with a fuel supply rate of up to 750 l / min.

This aircraft tanker meets IATA and STANAG standards and can be used for various types of NATO aircraft and helicopters located on both military and civilian airfields throughout Europe. The road train can be freely operated on public roads at speeds up to 80 km/h.
