Tanzania was also onto something

Tanzania at the same time was using the national Ministry of Defense and National Service to develop their own vehicles. The Tanzania Automotive Technology Center (TATC) was tasked with coming up with technological innovations.

The TATC received their start up and subsequent funding for uplifting and maintenance from the government coffers. The center designs, develops and manufactures motor vehicles and other pieces of machinery in line with its mission. Several vehicle models have since been produced pursuant to this dream. Check out some of the trucks developed and manufactured by the TATC.
