Bucher DURO 4x4/6x6

Notes: These are newer trucks to the Swiss Army. There are three versions, a 4x4 short wheelbase, a 4x4 long wheelbase, and a 6x6 version. There both soft and hard-bodies versions. Visibility is very good from the cab with the large windows. A handicap of the truck is its low suspension; this gives more efficient operation over roads, but detracts from its off-road performance.
