The latter is derived from the 10-ton 6 x 6 truck which DAF is at present producing for the Netherlands Army. AFCENT - a long-time DAF user - has also ordered 56 full -trailers for the mounting of shelters, to be towed by the new DAF’s.

One of the latest from DAF is this YA5442DH 5-ton load carrier, a 4 x 4 with 825DH diesel engine. Like the YTZ3300DKX shown in our previous issue (and which is now the YTZ3600DKZ, with DAF's new 360- bhp engine), this is a 'functional prototype' which can be adapted to meet a potential customer's specific needs. As shown, the truck features a front-mounted winch, 13.00R20 tyres and a Norwegian dropside cargo body built by Central Karrosseriefabrik A/S of Oslo.
