Axles - from old Man F2000 with planetary final drive. The trucks have drum brakes, and leaf suspension. Height of bolster is 1,40 m! The production is almost completely localized: imported equipment can be counted on fingers! The cabin is produces in India. The braking system is completely Indian. Steering system is from Europe. Engines, gearboxes, axles assemble in India, in a separate workshop. The most important components for the engines come from Europe: Bosch electronics - from Hungary, KKK turbocharger from German. But the starter is Indian. The main direction of exports - South Africa, where the truck are sent in disassembled form (the system of "truck in box"), Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia.
