The Philippine Army now has the three Light Tactical Vehicles (LTVs) reportedly provided by Kia Motors Corporation as “freebie” units for evaluation. The Department of National Defense (DND) made several acquisitions of military truck from Kia for the Philippine Army and Marines.
“[W]e received confirmation with evidence (aside from the photos below) on the delivery of 2 new KIA KLTV to the AFP, which is part of the previously reported “freebie” evaluation units sent by KIA in anticipation of possible orders from the Philippine Army and Philippine Marine Corps,” MaxDefense said on December 27.
The first KLTV was reportedly received by the Philippine Army early this year.
The Army and the Marines are expected to launch acquisition projects for their respective LTVs.
