The two-speed transfer box of the ADS company (the Czech Republic) is connected into a single power unit with engine and transmission. The use of imported engine, transmission and transfer box, as well as climatic performance from -15 ° C to + 55 ° C indicates that the new vehicle is oriented for export supplies.

The engine compartment is equipped with an automatic fire extinguishing system. There is a cargo (luggage) compartment.
Smooth running is ensured by an independent lever spring suspension with shock absorbers, and high cross-country ability - by the presence of a full differential drive with the ability of lock, high ground clearance - not less than 450 mm, as well as the presence of a tire pressure control system and the use of a Runflat device in the wheels. In addition, an electric self-recovery winch with 7.4 tons pulling force is installed.
