Mercedes-Benz was presenting six vehicles from its security and defense product range at the defense fair Idex in Abu Dhabi. The exhibited vehicles and products represent examples from Mercedes-Benz' diverse product range, for armed forces
and relevant public authorities and organizations, offering solutions for all payload
classes and mobility needs. Based on proven vehicles from large-scale production, the vehicles adapted to military tasks stand equally for the traditional Mercedes-Benz virtues such as reliability, robustness, economic efficiency and safety, underscoring Mercedes-Benz expertise and traditions as the world's largest and oldest truck manufacturer and a producer of G-Class all-terrain vehicles.

new 430 hp engine variant at the Idex 2015
Mercedes-Benz showed the new three-axle Zetros 6x6 semitrailer tractor which has been fitted with the Mercedes-Benz OM 457 LA, a proven and reliable engine rated
at 316 kW (430 hp) and generating 2100 Nm of torque. The exhibited vehicle – in the heaviest version with a permissible gross vehicle weight of 36 t – has demonstrated its robust reliability in extreme climates in the course of endurance and traction tests conducted in hot sand.
The Zetros 6x6 is a comfortable tractor vehicle which enables safe transport operations involving high payloads and towed loads, however inadequate the available infrastructure may be.
All in all the exhibitions showed a wide product range of Mercedes-Benz Defense Vehicles as a complete range spanning the spectrum from all-wheel-drive vehicles through all-terrain vehicles, transporters and semi-militarised trucks belonging to the Atego, Axor and Actros series, the all-terrain Unimog and Zetros vehicles to the Actros heavy-haulage vehicle.
