Portuguese term or phrase: QT
The orginal (Braz. Port.) is on antiaircraft defense systems and naturally has a lot of abbreviations, the only one of which I have not been able to decipher is in this line:

"Autonomia; 550 km em estrada e 400 km em QT"

Standard terminology would suggest "cruising range" for the first figure; the second...? Any thoughts appreciated.

English translation:Qualquer Terreno
Explanation:
Ed:

QT sounds like "qualquer terreno", i.e., off-road.

Anyway, this is just an educated guess.

I hope it helps,

Thanks, Márcio. I had come to the same conclusion and your answer confirms my reasoning and seems to fit the context. Here in Portugal we
usually see "TT" Todo-terreno...wasn't sure if Qualquer Terreno is a term used in Brazil, or not. As for the KT suggestion, it hadn't crossed my
mind, and it was worth looking into but the math doesn't work out.
