   The Scania R620 tractor truck with 8x4 configuration is a militarized version of commercial design. This truck was selected by the German army to replace the older SLT-50 Elefant tank transporter. It entered service in 2011. The Scania R620 is a more efficient vehicle and offers better overall economy than the previous tank transporter. It is worth noting that Scania is one of the top 5 truck manufacturers in the world.

   The Scania R620 tractor truck tows semi-trailers with main battle tanks, armored vehicles, artillery systems, containers, construction material and other military loads with a maximum weight of up to 70 t. This prime mover operates on roads. It has some level of cross-country mobility, however it is not a tactical vehicle, like the previous SLT-50 Elefant. The German Army also acquired the SLT-2 Mammut tank transporters, that are purposely designed military vehicles that can carry loads off-road.

   Even though the cab is compact, it accommodates driver, co-driver and four more passengers. The rear seat can be transformed into a sleeper bunk. Add-on armor kit is available for this cab. It provides protection against small arms fire, artillery shell splinters and IED blasts.

   Vehicle has a modular design. A number of components are interchangeable across the range of Scania commercial trucks. It facilitates easy access to parts and service. Vehicle is powered by a turbocharged diesel engine, developing 620 hp. The Scania R620 is more than twice fuel efficient than the previous SLT-50. Both two front axles are steerable. There is a powerful winch for cargo loading operations.
