The AMX had an aerodynamic lay-out characterized by a high swept wing, and with its Rolls-Royce Spey 807 engine could attain a maximum speed of 1,000 km / h. The Italian version was armed with a 20 mm M61 cannon and could carry an offensive payload of 3,800 kg. The Ghibli was deployed in several operational theaters (eg Afghanistan, Libya) to undertake advanced reconnaissance missions and also to provide close tactical support to ground troops.

RUBBER TYRES – CHROMED PARTS

The renowned US Portland based company “Freightliner Trucks”, which operates in the industrial vehicle sector and is owned by the automotive giant Daimler, is mainly known for being one of the key manufacturers of trucks used for “on road” transportation roles. However, it is also important to recognise the versatility and success over time, of those Freightliners that were dedicated to “heavy duties” jobs. In fact, market demand for “quarry and construction” vehicles saw strong growth in the late 1970s and early 1980s, subsequently impacting the production volumes of the main truck and heavy vehicle manufacturers. Freightliner designers have worked on the most suitable technical solutions to meet the needs of the construction market, namely, reinforced chassis and rear axles for greater payload, tough and sturdy tipping rear decks, optimized engines and transmissions for demanding loads and steep slopes.
