TATRA TO SUPPLY JORDAN WITH OVER 300 CHASSIS IN CZK 1 BILLION DEAL

TATRA TO SUPPLY JORDAN WITH OVER 300 CHASSIS IN CZK 1 BILLION DEAL

The Czech company Tatra Trucks will supply 328 chassis for military vehicles in a deal worth more than CZK 1 billion, the Kopřivnice based manufacturer announced in a press release on Friday. The company says that the deal, its largest this so far this year, could be developer further.

It is not the first time that Tatra has supplied Jordan with automobile chassis. Last year the manufacturer sent almost 150 to the Middle Eastern kingdom.

Tatra is also working with Jordanian partners on developing undercarriages and hopes that this will lead to further business.

Apart from Jordan, Tatra announced earlier this year that it will also be supplying 56 undercarriages to Brazil, 29 to the Turkish army and 12 fire engines into Israel.

The heavy-automobile producer has also sealed deals within the Czech Republic. The Defence Ministry has purchased 31 heavy trucks in a deal worth around CZK 500 million and it seems that Tatra will also take part in the production of 62 Titus armoured vehicles.

Tatra plans to produce up to 1,100 machines and expects sales to outdo production by about 100 vehicles. Last year, the manufacturer, which employs over 1,000 people, produced 790 vehicles. The majority owner of Tatra Trucks is defence industry focused holding Czechoslovak Group.

A little bit hidden, on the top floor of Skoda Museum, amid sculptures presenting Czechoslovak history, there was a surprising Hanzelka Zikmund sculpture, presenting Czech adventurism.

From the Skoda car museum we went to the Metodej Vlach aircraft museum with several nice aircraft, though my personal highlight was to see a 1909 Grade aircraft taking off, flying, landing and taxiing.

Returning to Lázně Bělohra, we used part of the track of the road race circuit where between 1952 anf 1976 the international Prachovské Skály races were held. Though known from its motorcycle races, the Tatra works team competed here succesfully in the early ‘fifties with T 607s (Alois Mark on the photo) In the ’sixties Tatra Delphins competed in the Formula Junior class here.

We further visited the battleground of the famous 1866 battle between Prussians and Austrians and a sculpture park before returning to Lázně Bělohra.

Members of the former Tatra race team used to meet once a year for a beer and nostalgic talks.  They then also visited the start?finish of the local circuit, the Stramberk-Rybi-Zavisice triangle, t6he public roads not only used for incidental races, but also for Tatra testing. Regrettably, due to age problems, deaths and other problems, only August Lacina was able to be present. As a navigator, he teamed up with Milan Hruby, Jiri Pelucha, Ivan Micik and others.  But for at least three years he teamed up with the well-known Jaroslav Pavelka.
