   The Tatra T815-78OR89 is a heavy duty tactical truck. It is a 6x6 variant of the Tatra T815-7 family, specially designed for military needs. These vehicles were designed for operation over rough terrain and in difficult climatic and environmental conditions. Trucks are compatible with NATO standards. This military truck is in service with the Czech Republic.

   The Tatra T815-78OR89 is simple in design and technology. This military truck has a payload capacity of about 10 000 kg. Vehicle can serve as tactical truck or carry various kinds of special superstructures and load handling systems. It can also transport standard containers and shelters.

   A standard two-person cab does not have armor, however it is prepared for various levels of add-on armoring. Several layers of add-on protection are available. Maximum level is against 7.62-mm rounds and 6 kg mine blast anywhere under the hull. Armor kit can be removed at any time.

   Vehicle has all-wheel drive chassis and employs unique Tatra's independent suspension with backbone tube frame and swinging half-axles. Each wheel moves up and down independently, which allows exceptional cross country mobility and higher speeds on rough roads. This unique chassis has been constantly developed and improved by Tatra for more than 80 years. A number of automotive components are interchangeable within the T815-7 range.

   The Tatra T815-78OR89 is proposed with various engine options, including Tatra's T3-928 air-cooled engines, as well as Cummins or Caterpillar units. Vehicle has advanced pneumatic suspension with a variable ground clearance, which can be temporarily increased or reduced while driving. This military truck is also fitted with a central tyre inflation system. Vehicle has a climatic operational range from -32C to +49C. The Tatra T815-78OR89 can be airlifted by the C-130 Hercules transport aircraft due to low cabin structure.
