   The ACMAT VLA series of logistic trucks is a further development of the VLRA. All ACMAT vehicles have a high degree of parts commonality. The ACMAT military trucks are used by the French Army, as well as over 40 countries worldwide. These vehicles are also used for various civilian applications.

   The ACMAT trucks were specially designed for harsh operating environments. These vehicles are known for their simplicity, reliability and ruggedness. Originally they were targeted at African and Asian countries.

   The ACMAT VLA has a conventional layout with a front-mounted engine and forward control cab. Cargo area is located at the rear. The VLA general utility trucks are fitted with all-metal two-person cabs.

   These logistic trucks were primarily designed to carry pallets, shelters and containers, however they are also available with general troop/cargo bodies. The last mentioned versions have a cargo area covered with removable bows and canvas cover. Trucks have drop sides and tailgate. Vehicles can tow trailers or artillery pieces.

   The ACMAT VLA is available in 4x4, 6x6 and 8x8 configurations. Vehicles have a payload capacity of 4 000 to 7 500 kg. All versions are powered with Perkins turbocharged diesel engines, developing 180 hp (4x4) and 210 hp (6x6 and 8x8). These trucks have a full-time all-wheel drive. Vehicles have an unrefueled range of 1 000 km.

   All ACMAT trucks have a high degree of parts commonality. Up to 80% of their parts, including engines, axles, transfer cases, cabs and structural components can be interchanged across the entire product line. It is worth mentioning, that parts are interchangeable with vehicles built 30 years ago.

   The ACMAT VLA trucks can be airlifted by the C-130 Hercules or TRANSALL C-160 tactical transport aircraft.
