   The Sisu E13TP is a high mobility tactical truck. This vehicle was specially developed for peacekeeping operations. It is fitted with a mine-protected armored cab. In 2005 Lithuania ordered 24 of these military trucks. These entered service in 2008. In 2009 Finland ordered 72 trucks.

   The Sisu E13TP has a modular design. All trucks have standardized base structural attachments. Vehicle can carry loads up to 20 t. It can operate in extreme climatic and terrain conditions. Vehicle can be fitted with palletized load handling equipment. Its load handling system is integrated within the chassis rails, rather than being placed on them, as with majority of other designs. The E13TP can be also used as a radar carrier, missile launcher, or recovery vehicle.

   This military truck comes with a mine-protected armored cabin. Add-on armor can be fitted to increase protection level. The cab withstands 6 kg anti-tank mine blasts and also provides protection against small arms fire and artillery shell splinters. Cabs are fitted with NBC protection systems.

   The Sisu E13TP is powered by Caterpillar C13 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 445 hp. It is coupled with Allison automatic transmission. Vehicle has a 8x6 configuration on hard surface roads and 8x8 over rough terrain. This military truck is fitted with a self-recovery winch. A central tyre inflation system is proposed as an option. The Sisu E13TP has a climatic operation range from -55C to +50C. This military truck can be airlifted by C-130 Hercules or larger cargo aircraft.

   There is also a larger 10x10 version, the Sisu E15T. The Sisu E15T is used as a mechanized bridge. It is in service with Germany.
