    Picked up this weekend, is a long-term project. The idea is to mount it in the back of Tatran and decorate it for short term accommodation.


    It is a Swedish Stab Cab.

    The shelters are made by "KUNG" and come in many variants, both in size and in interiors. Anything from workshop, generators, to radio and staff, etc.

    Theres some info on the UK Russian Military Trucks forum, here: http://www.russianmilitarytrucks.com...hp?f=54&t=5803

    Well I have had both. The 813 kolos was sold 2 years ago but I still have my Man KAT 5 ton. The difference is like night and day between the to! The 813 is crude and I mean crude. Parts are cheap when you find them and you will need to find a source for they do break, BUT the MAN KAT just goes and goes. The Deutz V8 diesel starts, runs and cant over heat with its air cooling. The MAN is just high high quality and you feel it when you drive it.

    Default Tatra 813 vs MAN Kat1 10t

    Thank Duncan,

    Carlos, to be far that's comparing 2 different decades of truck DESIGN, I know 813 spanned into the early 80's but its design is mid 60's with very few changes, I'll conceded that German build quality is the best but the put 815 to KAT1 and the balance is a lot closer except in offroad performance where it's hand down to Tatra. End of day one has to make decision on requirements etc

    All I can clearly and honestly say I have owned and operated both. Parts are not as easy as they were to find and prices are 5 times higher in a short time. My 813 Passed more time waiting for parts than being used. I can go to my local Man dealer and he has the part tomorrow morning.
    I must also add I am a retired Army major in the italian army armour. We spent years testing the 813 and 815 and found the build quality 3 world level. The US army even choose Man Kat's in Europe!

    Default Tatra 813 vs MAN Kat1 10t

    I'm not arguing 813, look at my YouTube videos from UK Mil DVD show 2007 back to back MAN 8x8 v T817 8x8 no comparison and offroad Trucktrials Tatra kicks everything out of its path hence why Navistar / Tatra ATV (T817) for the military
