This page was realised by Erik Hendriks

Beginning in 1995 Freightliner shipped completely-built-up cabs and completely-knocked-down (CKD) chassis to Israel for final assembly by Automotive Industries Ltd. This is the basic vehicle.

Safari
(open)

The Safari type of trucks are used to transport troops to check points and strong holds. The vehicles have also been used to transport civilians to and from settlements. This is the open version, with a small alleyway at the front as well as the rear of the cargo floor. The space between the roof on the one hand and the armoured sides, front and rear on the other was open.

 The previously described version was closed by adding an overlap to the roof.

 

International 4700 “Dana”

Along with the purchase of the Freightliner line of trucks, International was granted a contract to deliver the International 4700 truck. This truck is known as Dana. The vehicles were delivered as knock down kits and assembled by Taasiyot Rehev.

Some of the International trucks were equipped with a hydraulic lift platform at the rear of the cargo floor.

 EOD

This version of the International 4700 Dana was developed by IAI/Ramta as a protected EOD vehicle which is currently in use by the IDF and Israeli Border police. The vehicle contains two robots stored in the rear compartment which are deployed via hydraulic lift/ramp. Access and egress is available from rear and side, as well as from forward crew cabin. The crew can fight and return fire from within the vehicle, through side firing ports and top firing hatch. The vehicle is also equipped with external floodlights, on-board generator, and run-flat tires.

 

Safarit

The Safarit seems to be the replacement for the Freightliner FLC-112 Safari trucks. Unlike the previous vehicles, this armoured truck has one compartment. The sides and rear have firing holes, enabling the occupants to fight from within the vehicle.

Little is known as to how the delivery of the Navistar International trucks came into being. The basic vehicle has two axles, a conventional cargo floor and a tarp made from Shimshon canvas.

A fire engine was developed for use with the Israeli armed forces. The build up was probably done by the Hatehoff company, which has a rich history of producing fire engines.

Navistar International “Girit”

The previously mentioned NBC decontamination unit, developed by Hatehoff, was fitted to the Navistar International truck. The truck has three axles. It in unknown whether the vehicle is in operational service.
