The vehicle is able to navigate in the water, circulate on the road and off-road, on uneven and muddy terrain. It is equipped with differentials on the front, rear and central axles suitably sized for the heavy working conditions to which the vehicle is subjected. The Iveco Magirus “Duffy” is a 15 ton, 3 axle, 6×6 chassis. Equipped with an FPT Industrial N60 ENT engine, equipped with an Allison automatic transmission and independent hydro-pneumatic suspensions, the vehicle is able to reach 85 kilometers per hour on the road.
