The SISU 8×8 model features an integrated load handling mechanism, which gives the vehicle a low centre of gravity and a low overall height. As a result, the SISU 8×8 can be transported in an aircraft (e.g. Hercules C-130). When loaded with a 1CC container, the total height of the truck using the standard 14.00R20 off road tires does not exceed 4 meters. Beneath the cabin a mine shield integrated to chassis frame protects from the land mines. Inside the cabin there is ready mounting studs for optional modular ballistic protection kit. Assembly, and disassembly, of the ballistic protection kit can be done in few hours, even in field. In addition, the cabin is airtight, which enables NBC protection.
Equipped with an integrated load handling system to ensure efficient operation even in extreme conditions.
