   The Dongfeng EQ2102 is a Chinese military truck with 6x6 configuration. It is a Chinese militarized version of Nissan Diesel Condor commercial vehicle. The EQ2102 was produced by Dongfeng. Currently the Dongfeng corporation is one of China's largest automotive manufacturers, providing a number of designs, used by the Chinese army. It was adopted by the Chinese army in the mid 1990s. At the time production of the Japanese Nissan Diesel Condor truck of the second generation ceased in favor to a newer design. The EQ2102 replaced some older Chinese military trucks, produced before the 1980s, including Jiefang CA-30 and Dongfeng EQ240/EQ2081 and EQ245/EQ2100 trucks. Currently this military truck is used in large numbers by the Chinese army. It has been exported to Myanmar (4 000 units) and possibly some other countries. In 1997 a first batch of 1 000 units was sold to Myanmar. Another batch of 3 000 units followed in 2002.
