The Military Historical Institute will take part at the NATO Days in Ostrava & Czech Air Force Days this year as well. It will present a static and dynamic display of the mobile command post OT-64/R2 SKOT.

It is a medium wheeled armoured personnel carrier, which was developed and produced with the participation of Czechoslovakia, which produced components such as engines, gearboxes and chassis. The R2 variant served as a mobile command post and, unlike other versions, was equipped with a turret.

"The OT-64/R2 was the best transporter of its kind of the time, unrivalled due to its excellent handling qualities, eight-wheel drive and sailing capability. Its qualities are evidenced by its successful export to more than 10 countries around the world and the fact that many still use it today," said Zbyněk Pavlačík, Chairman of Jagello 2000.

The development of the OT-64/R2 SKOT began in the mid 1950s and the main manufacturer was the Polish company Fabryka Samochodów Ciężarowych. In 1969, serial production began and about 4,500 of these machines were produced and exported to various parts of the world. For example, Poland, Hungary, Syria, Iran, and Sudan had them in their arsenals.
