Iveco, a brand of CNH Industrial, has supplied the Brazilian Air Force with 10 medium range trucks. These vehicles will be used to assist the armed forces with its ongoing mission to protect the Amazonian rainforest, according to the company.
The trucks were delivered to the Brazilian Aeronautical Commission recently. Delivery of the vehicles took place in Belém, the capital of the Brazilian state of Pará. Representatives from Iveco and officials from the Commission participated in the handover.
The vehicles will be operated through the Airport Commission of the Amazon Region – Comara. The Commission oversees the design, construction, and equipping of airports. Among the activities taking place at these airports are the ongoing military and civilian missions aimed at protecting the Amazon rainforest region, according to Iveco.
The vehicles that have been provided are models from the Iveco Tector Attack line, the latest medium range product offered by the brand in Latin America. Chosen for their versatility, these trucks will aid the Air Force in the execution of civil works assigned by federal, state, or municipal government agencies.
