OTT Armoured Vehicles
The SAMIL 20 When the United Nations placed an embargo on defense material exports to South Africa the South Africans were forced to use their own resources to provide themselves with equipment and armaments. They formed South African Military (SAMIL) to manufacture military trucks, one of which became the 2-tonne light utility vehicle, the SAMIL 20. Based on the Unimog chassis design, but with many locally-incorporated features, the SAMIL 20 became the base component of a large range of vehicles but the cargo vehicle has been produced in the largest numbers. This has a soft-topped forward control cab and a high cargo bed able to seat up to ten soldiers, but the main feature of the SAMIL 20 is its extreme toughness, provided to enable the vehicle to survive under harsh South African conditions.
The SAMIL 50 was based on the design of the Magirus-Deutz 192D12Al (now the IVECO Magirus 120-19 ANWM) but was considerably modified locally to make the vehicle considerably stronger and incorporate locally-available components. The SAMIL 50 is one of the standard South African Defense Forces vehicles and is used in large numbers. Visually it resembles the Magirus Deutz original but there are many detail changes and the SAMIL 50 is able to remain operational for extended periods even under the harshest South African operational conditions.
The SAMIL 50 is used as the basis for an extended range of vehicles, all of which can be fitted with an armored mine-proof cab. Removable bench seats in the rear can carry up to 40 troops and a virtual permanent fixture used in operational areas is a twin-axle trailer carrying up to 6 000 kg.
The SAMIL 100 is virtually a SAMIL 50 with an extra axle at the rear and a more powerful V-10 diesel engine. It shares many components (such as the cab) with the SAMIL 50 and is again based on Magirus-Deutz models, although considerably strengthened to suit local conditions and incorporating many locally-available components. This military truck has been proven under combat conditions. It is currently in service with South Africa, Alger, and possibly some other countries.
SAMIL Trucks have been used by the South African National Defence Force for a number of years and have proven to be reliable under extreme conditions. Ideally suited to African conditions, SAMIL Trucks are widely recognised as the best and most versatile heavy-duty all-terrain trucks on the market. They have become the 4x4 and 6x6 trucks of choice for the Mining, Construction, Forestry and Tourism sectors. The SAMIL range of 4x4 & 6x6 trucks are based on MAGIRUS trucks of Germany. MAGIRUS subsequently became part of the IVECO Group of Italy. In South Africa 2 ranges of Уconventional driveФ, 4x2 and 6x4, trucks were produced also derived from MAGIRUS trucks. These are the SAMAG & SAKOM brands.
