   The Sisu A2045 is a standard general utility truck in service with the Finnish Defense Forces. It is also being referred as HMTV or High Mobility Terrain Vehicle. It was designed by Sisu Auto to replace the ageing Sisu A45 and KB45. The new truck was first publicly revealed in 2008. Currently it is the lightest version in the Sisu product family. Finnish Defense Forces ordered 232 of these vehicles. All trucks were delivered between 2009 and 2010.

   The Sisu A2045 has a payload capacity 5 000 kg. It is designed to operate in harsh terrain and weather conditions. It has been designed for rapid deployment. The main role of this truck is to carry troops and cargo on and off road. A total of 12 troops can be carried at the rear. Troops are seated in individual outward-facing seats. Vehicle can also tow trailers, artillery pieces, anti-aircraft weapons, or command modules.

   The cab accommodates driver and two passengers. Vehicle is also proposed with an integrated armored cab. It provides protection against small arms fire and artillery shell splinter. It withstands mine blasts equivalent to 6 kg of TNT. Furthermore add-on armor can be fitted for even higher level of protection. The cab is fitted with NBC protection system.

   Engine, axles and some other automotive components are supplied by German truck manufacturer MAN. Vehicle is powered by a MAN DO 836 LFL50 diesel engine, developing 240 hp. It complies with EURO 5 emission requirements. A more powerful Caterpillar C7 diesel, developing 275 hp is optional. Vehicle is proposed with German ZF 12-speed manual or 9-speed automatic transmission. It seems that all trucks supplied to the Finnish armed forces are fitted with manual transmission. This truck has good cross-country mobility. It is fitted with selectable all-wheel drive system. Also it can be a front- or rear-wheel drive, depending on road conditions. Vehicle is fitted with a self-recovery winch as standard. However the A2045 has been criticized that it lacks cross-country mobility, comparing with older Finish Defense Forces trucks that it replaced.
