   The Ashok Leyland is an Indian vehicle manufacturing company. Over the years products of this company have built a reputation for reliability and ruggedness. It is the leading supplier of logistics vehicles to Indian Army. The FAT or Field Artillery Tractor was designed as a private venture and is aimed both at domestic and foreign markets. Vehicle is intended to be used as a gun tractor for up to 155-mm field guns and howitzers. It also carries ammunition and artillery crews. The FAT will undergo trial evaluation with the Indian Army, which requires a vehicle to replace a fleet of ageing Scania SBAT 6x6 artillery tractors, delivered since 1986.

   The FAT has a payload capacity of 10 000 kg. Vehicle is fitted with forward control and chassis mounted artillery crew cabins. These can be fitted with add-on armor protection. This military truck is equipped with a hydraulic hoist for self-loading and unloading of ammunition.

   The FAT artillery tractor is powered by the Ashok Leyland BSIII turbocharged diesel engine, developing 345 hp. Later it was proposed with a Cummins ISM 420-30 diesel engine, developing 410 hp. Engine options up to 500 hp are available. Vehicle has a constant all-wheel drive and is fitted with a central tyre inflation system, to suit different terrain conditions. The FAT has been developed specially for desert and semi-desert areas. It can move through deep sand. Vehicle is fitted with a self-recovery winch.
