   The Tatrapan 8x8 armored container carrier was developed in Slovakia by VYVOJ Martin. The same company produces Tatrapan range of armored personnel carriers. Development of the container carrier commenced in 2011. Vehicle was publicly revealed in 2012.

   Main mission for this heavy-duty vehicle is to transport standard ISO containers. It is worth noting that currently containers are the backbone of military logistics. Most military cargo are transported by containers. This container carrier has a maximum payload capacity of 17 200 kg. It can also tow trailer with a maximum weight of 16 000 kg. Vehicle can carry containers over all kinds of rough terrain.

   Armored cab of the Tatrapan accommodates driver and two passengers. The baseline protection is against small arms fire, artillery shell splinters, hand grenade blasts and anti-personnel mines. Modular add-on armor can be fitted for a higher level of protection. Maximum level of protection is against 7.62-mm armor-piercing rounds and blasts equivalent to 6 kg of TNT under any wheel. Additional armor can be fitted in field conditions. The cab is also fitted with NBC protection system.

   Various remotely controlled weapon systems can be fitted for self-defense. These can be armed with 7.62-mm, 12.7-mm machine gun or 40-mm automatic grenade launcher.

   This container carrier is based on the Tatra T815-790R99. Vehicle uses proven Tatra high-mobility chassis. It is powered by a Tatra T3C-928-90 turbocharged air-cooled diesel engine, developing 400 hp. Engine is located behind the cab. Such layout allowed to reduce height of the vehicle. The Tatrapan 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. It has 8x8 configuration however on hard surface roads both front axles can be disconnected for maximum speed and range. The Tatrapan is fitted with advanced pneumatic suspension with adjustable ground clearance. Depending on terrain conditions the ground clearance can be temporarily increased or reduced while driving. Vehicle is fitted with a central tyre inflation system. Tyres are fitted with run-flat inserts. A self-recovery winch can be fitted. The Tatrapan container carrier can operated in various climatic conditions, ranging from -32C to +50C.
