  1. @cv news , can you throw some light on the tech specs of Alpha? Is it just a cosmetic surgery on Lynx or more meat in it?

    Some of the products such as Captain 2532T were already showcased and nothing new in it.

    Wonder what is new is ‘Boss 1616’? Hopefully its not ‘1616’ in Boss Cab… If so, its a step backwards as AL had boldly moved towards more powerful 1618…

    4123 has to be most interesting product out there, given the fact that market is embracing high tonnage trucks, its a matter of time before it hits the road. Eager to see how it fares against TML4323…

    4932 isn’t new, it was available in U-cab before, but given the fact that BB 4928 is doing good, AL should give push to Captain 4932 against 4923… It shouldn’t be another 3123 which just existed in product catalog and very few operators owned it…

    Awaiting a detailed article on 4123 from @cv news

    1. Alpha is n AC Staff bus on Lynx Smart platform. Captain will be the next main stream product line for AL and will have multiple applications and segment products from the range. Boss 1616 is not a step backward but a logical upgrade from the current cowl versions.
