The French military truck Renault Midlum heavily stuck in mud during preliminary trials in Ukraine, reported military-informant.com.
The Renault Midlum that participated in the exercises have been presented to a group of military men with the Chief of the General Staff, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forced of Ukraine Mr.V.Muzhenko at the head and battalion commanders. After inspection military vehicles have been test driven by armed forces personnel and battalion commanders.
During the test, the Renault Midlum truck did not cope with trail obstacles and stuck in the mud. Ukraine KrAZ-Fiona vehicles had to recover stuck vehicles.
The new generation of the Renault Midlum trucks is part of an extensive program of product renewal that Renault Trucks has been pursuing in recent years.
The Midlum family of 4×2 and 4×4 rigid trucks is based on commercial vehicles which are adapted to the specific needs of armed forces. They are ideally suited for logistic missions and benefit from the low lifecycle costs of commercial vehicles. The Midlum is available with several wheelbases, GVW, equipment and cabs (single or crew cabs) to transport various payloads:cargo, shelters, weapon systems, troops, water or fuel tanks.
As a troop carrier, the Midlum 4×4 is able to transport up to 18 or 27 soldiers (2 or 3 rows) in a drop-side tarpolin flatbed.
