   The MOWAG DURO IIIP (DUrable and RObust) is an armored, mine-protected multi-purpose transport vehicle, based on the DURO III 6x6. The first prototype was completed in 1999. This armored version of the DURO is available only in 6x6 form. Currently it is in service with the Swiss Army, where it is known as DURO GMTF. This armored vehicle has been exported to Denmark and is co-produced in Germany.

   Vehicle is fitted with a fully-enclosed modular shelter, which can be replaced to suit specific mission requirements. It has a payload capacity of 3 000 kg and sufficient internal volume to fulfill a number of roles. Variety of shelter modules can be mounted on a single chassis.

   In Swiss Army service these vehicles are used as armored personnel carriers and NBC reconnaissance vehicles. In Danish Army service these vehicles are used as ambulances.

   The DURO IIIP has a modular protection concept, which can be improved by adding armor kits. Baseline variant protects against 7.62-mm rounds and artillery shell splinters. Vehicle withstands 6 kg AT mine blast under any wheel.

   Vehicle accommodates up to 12 troops, plus the crew of two. Troops enter and leave the vehicle through the rear door.

   The MOWAG DURO IIIP might be fitted with remotely controlled weapon station, armed with 7.62-mm machine gun or 40-mm automatic grenade launcher.

   This military vehicle is powered by a Cummins ISBe turbocharged diesel engine, developing 245 hp. This engine meets EURO III emission requirements. The DURO IIIP has a permanent all-wheel drive system. It uses a patented stabilizer system, which allows axle twisting on rough terrain. Vehicle is fitted with a run-flat tyres as standard.
