Remember the Movendi T 77a offered at Retromobile last year?  The car was sold to Florida and looks more honest, now its coat of paint has been removed.

TFI: Does the phoenix rises from its ashes?

Early May a Tatra meeting will be organised in Mattsee, Austria.  It is held on the well-known traditional Ascension weekend, always claimed and used by the Tatra Freunde International.  As the TFI has experienced problems with finding successors in their supervisory board, the (the oldest western-European Tatra Club)  club made a neglected impression the last years with no annual meeting held in 2015 and no meeting planned in 2016.  To give its members a chance to meet again, some members have taken the initiative to meet again and a meeting was planned in Mattsee, Austria, the place where the TFI was founded in 1975 by Dr. Friedrich Duering http://www.tatraclub.at/ The supervisory board of the TFI has requested the organisation of the meeting to allow a TFI general members to be held to decide whether the TFI should be discontinued or reactivated with a new supervisory board. All initiatives are welcomed.

The 2016 Mattsee meeting has attracted a wide range of Tatras from a T 11 to T 613s.  Thirty-five Tatras from not less than seven countries will head for Austria early May. Unique cars like a T 77, a T 17/31 and an Austr0-Tatra will be present.

The TFI has been a very active club in the past, with its last meeting held in 2014 in the Netherlands. Previous meetings were held in Austria, Germany, the Netherlands and the U.K. Als, the TFI participated in the 1987, 1997 and 2007 Vienna-Koprivnice meeting, to celebrate the anniversary of the Tatra factory.

In the past years, dealers and Autostadt showed T 87s. Not this year however. Only Tatras present were a T 613-1 at the Tatra Register Deutschland club stand and a T 613 offered at the Coys auction. Auction results are unknown, however. The traditional Tatra club stand, run by the TFI till 2014 and since then by the TRD, welcomed several Tatra enthusiasts who are always welcome for a drink and a chat.

TATRA TRUCKS to Introduce TATRA FORCE Series at DEFEXPO 2016, India

TatraForce2016defexpo

The Indian Armed Forces operate more than 10,000 TATRA vehicles and is historically one of the largest users of TATRA vehicles in the world. The TATRA FORCE series stands out with its unprecedented terrain manoeuvrability, including fording up to 1.5m, reliability, ability to drive in both extremely low and high outside temperature, easy operation and long service cycle. The new vehicle series could therefore mean a certain evolution step in terms of TATRA all-wheel-drive vehicles currently operated in India, ranging from 4×4 up to 12×12 versions.

Between 2003 and 2012, 3,925 assembly kits were delivered to India, where they were completed and coupled with different superstructures according to needs and requirements of Indian Armed Forces. Because of the problems associated with unlawful acts of former major Indian stakeholder of TATRA, R. Rishi, all deliveries from the Czech Republic to India were stopped. A major breakthrough in the TATRA’s return to Indian market occurred after the change of ownership structure of the TATRA company in 2013 when it has been bought by Czech shareholders. Additionally, in February 2015, TATRA TRUCKS representatives signed a memorandum with Indian state enterprise BEML, which, on behalf of Indian Armed Forces, carries out final completion of the vehicles delivered in the form kits for assembly – CKD sets.

Last year, TATRA TRUCKS under the new ownership and new management delivered 100 vehicles to India, mostly in the form of complete knocked down (CKD) sets . Also, TATRA TRUCKS subsidiary TATRA India has been established in order to develop after-sales services in the region. Because of the customer’s satisfaction, proved top-quality of TATRA vehicles and last but not least, exceptional properties and universality of use of their vehicles in demanding Indian conditions, TATRA TRUCKS’ plan for 2016 is to deliver at least 250 vehicles in different states of readiness for the final assembly.
