MANAGUA, Nicaragua -- The Nicaraguan Army has reported that it took delivery of new transport trucks on May 24, 2018. The trucks were delivered through Guasaule via Honduras. While few details were released by the Ministry of Defense, a statement on its website indicates that the trucks were ordered months ago to replace Nicaragua's current inventory of aging vehicles.

Local media reports indicate that Nicaragua received 12 trucks built by Mercedes Benz of Germany.

Nicaragua currently operates a wide variety of trucks, including Unimog U-1300, IFA L60, Zil-131, and Ural-375, and VW-183 Iltis. It is unclear how old these trucks are. However, Nicaragua has stated that they do not meet the technical needs of the Army, and therefore many are being replaced.
