   The Tatra T815-7BOR42 is a heavy duty tactical truck. It was first revealed in 2004 as the Tatra T-817. It is a member of the new Tatra T815-7 truck 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. It is in service with the Czech Republic.

   The Tatra T815-7BOR42 is simple in design and technology. Vehicle has a maximum payload capacity of 7 800 kg. It can also tow artillery pieces or trailer with a maximum weight of 20 000 kg. A standard flatbed platform with tarpaulin cover and foldable benches provides seating for 20 soldiers. This military truck can also carry special purpose bodies or containers.

   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.

   This military truck is powered by a Cummins ISBe 275 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 270 hp. It meets EURO III emission requirements. Other engine options are available, including the Tatra's T3-928 air-cooled engines. 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 T815-7BOR42 can be airlifted by the C-130 Hercules transport aircraft due to low cabin structure.
