IMR TARA

Notes: This appears to be based on a Pinzgauer design, but has a longer wheelbase than itís nearest comparable Pinzgauer counterpart and numerous other changes. A tarpaulin may cover the rear area, and the cab is enclosed with a heater. The windshield may be folded forward to allow fire through the front of the vehicle. The TARA is issued with a camouflage net and is insulated against radio interference (jamming attempts degrade radios inside the vehicle one level less, and it is also somewhat resistant to EMP). There is a small winch in the front with a capacity of 1 ton, and some vehicles are fitted with an air conditioner. Variants of the basic vehicle include a minibus, a pickup (with or without an enlarged cab), a hard bodied van, and a shelter or container carrier.

Zastava AR-51

Notes: The AR-51 is basically the Italian Fiat AR-59 built under license in Yugoslavia, with a slightly different front end housing a Yugoslavian-made engine of somewhat less power than that of the AR-59 (only 48 horsepower). As with the AR-59, the AR-51 has two individual front seats and two bench seats on either side of the rear cargo area, which may be folded up to increase cargo space. The AR-51 has a soft top over bows; when they are not in use, the bows are removed and the tarpaulin cover rolled up, and they are strapped to the rear of the vehicle. In Yugoslavian service, the AR-51 is used primarily for command and liaison, as well as to tow the M-52 120mm mortar, the M-55 triple 20mm antiaircraft gun, and the 76mm M-48 field gun. There is also an ambulance version. Though the AR-51 is still being used in some numbers by the Yugoslavians, it has to some extent been replaced by Fiat Campagnolas built under license in Yugoslavia. The AR-51 is also used by Myanmar (Burma) in small numbers.
