Volvo trucks are always optimised. Normally, the truck is adapted in terms of such factors as maximum payload, low fuel consumption, high average speed or a very comfortable workplace for the driver. Sometimes, however, trucks are optimised to perform tasks which require other qualities than the above.
Adapted to special military tasks
The TL11/12 and the TL22 were examples of Volvo trucks adapted to special military tasks. These vehicles were all-wheel driven and propelled by the reliable A6 petrol engine with an output of 105 or 115 bhp. The areas of use were, however, different between the TL11/12 and the TL22.
