Caption: Protection of tactical trucks has extended to even heavy support trucks like this Mercedes Actros eight-wheel drive AHSVS (Armoured Heavy Support Vehicle System) which is employed by the Canadian Army.
The four-axle, 8x8 all-terrain Mercedes-Benz AHSVS is similar to the four-axle Actros trucks sold for construction applications.
Initial delivery of the AHSVS to Afghanistan began in the fall and the first vehicles were to be used in support of UN peacekeeping missions.
