Troop carriers are designed to transport infantry with their equipment – on surfaced roads or even off-road over rough terrain. Troop carriers, or “personnel carriers” as they are sometimes called, vary greatly in size, power, and configuration– from a 4x4 chassis up to an 8x8 truck, depending on the bay length and the number of troops.

Bench seating and removable camouflage.
The Actros troop carrier’s design is based on two seat benches with back rests, parallel to the truck frame. The whole unit is covered with camouflaged tarpaulin which can be removed at any time.
Flexible design: transport troops or carry cargo.
Along with carrying infantry, the unit can also be utilised as a cargo body – simply by removing the two foldable seat benches.
