Tatra T 810 is a medium truck made by Czech company Tatra, which replaced in the Army of the Czech Republic popular Praga V3S, which was introduced in the 1950s and served until 2008. Unlike other Tatra trucks, it does not use the traditional Tatra conception of backbone chassis and swinging half-axles, but the customary truck architecture with conventional frame.
The Tatra T810 general utility truck will eventually replace the ageing Praga V3S in Czech Army service. Overall requirement is for about 2 000 vehicles. Production of this military truck commenced in 2007. Main function of this vehicle is logistic support of the troops.
The T810 traces its origins back to the ROSS R210 6×6 truck, jointly developed by Czech company ROSS and French Renault. The ROSS company went bankrupt in 1998, however Tatra obtained full production rights for this truck and continued cooperation with Renault. It is worth mentioning that at that time Tatra had no military trucks of the same class in its model range.
