MTU Diesels For Polish Military Vehicles

21 September 2017

Rolls-Royce will supply 500 MTU Series 106 engines to Polish vehicle manufacturer Jelcz. The type 6R 106 TD21 engines will be used to power four-wheel drive Jelcz 442.32 all-terrain trucks for use by the Polish Armed Forces. The first of these engines are due to ship this year.

MTU said it has already supplied 900 Series 106 engines for Jelcz vehicles currently in service with the Polish army.

“We are delighted at having succeeded, once again, in convincing Jelcz of the benefits of MTU engines,” said Knut Müller, head of Marine and Government Business at MTU. “The fact that Jelcz has now ordered a total of 1400 of our engines for its vehicles is proof positive of the superb, close collaboration between our two companies.”

The type 6R 106 TD21 six-cylinder engines are rated 326 hp (240 kW) and are engineered to be resistant to electromagnetic impulses and can also be operated on aviation fuel, the company said.
