IDEX 2013 - URO Introduces New Light Vehicle

URO's main activity is the design, production, assembling and after-sales service of Special Heavy Duty Off-road Vehicles and its complementary equipment, both for military purposes and civil applications.

UROVESA produces two types of Off-Road vehicles: the Tactical Truck TT URO (truck of 14 to 18t) and the High Mobility Multipurpose Light Vehicle, VAMTAC, which has so far been sold to 21 customers. VAMTAC's advantage is its full maturity and its modularity, giving the customer almost 50 variants to choose from.
