I think it is getting tested for some generic endurance category certification by either the indian gov't or some other RHD market which requires US army type certification or clearance a they propably follow similar standard if meant for US it MUST be in LHD for it to be relevant

Doesn't seem like a new one, going by the rust & chipped paint on the front fender. I doubt if this was brought in for testing.

Excellent found there!

There was a tie-up. Iveco and the Hinduja group together owned 51% of shares of AL. The Hindujas bought Iveco's shares in July 2006 and the partnership ended amicably.

I dont know about the tech licensing, I think these vehicles have Iveco's tech collaboration.

This vehicle is probably an army surplus. The Stallion is not available in civilian models, except a tipper model, AFAIK.

The US Army is probably using these vehicles for special forces training etc? AL has bagged an order worth of US$ 10million to supply stallions for the Honduras army this year...

AFAIK stallion features a day cab option only. This is a sleeper cab type . another thing is stalli is featuring hino W06DTI engine and its not from iveco?

So is this any 4WD version of the older cargo??
