  • Description

    Using the experience of past African expeditions, the Csepel Motor Factory has just produced a new fuel-tanker capable of operating in even the most arduous desert conditions.

    The new fuel transporter, D-346 , has a four-wheel drive and special wide-track tyres -- ensuring that the vehicle will not sink into desert sand even under a load of 10 tons.

    A unique feature of the driver's cab is an air filter, making it possible for the crew to drive through desert sand storms. The cab is also protected from tropical sunshine by a double hood.

    The fuel tanker has recently undergone rigorous tests at sand pits near the Csepel factory. Further trials under African desert conditions are due shortly.
