German Army to procure 700 GreenLiner 4x4 vehicles
The German Army is set to procure 700 GreenLiner 4x4 vehicles to enhance its unprotected military vehicle fleet.
The GreenLiner procurement programme began in August 2019 with initial delivery of the trucks set to begin from September 2020, according to the Bundeswehr website.
The design of the vehicle is based on the G-Class Mercedes-Benz with a six-cylinder 135kW engine. It offers all-wheel drive and automatic transmission making it suitable for exercises and operations including for off-road terrains. Full air-conditioning with cooling package and auxiliary heating makes it suitable use in a range of climatic environments.
GreenLiner cabins can host up to four soldiers along with their equipment.
Assembly of the GreenLiners is completed by Mercedes-Benz G Daimler and the Knapp Service in Graz, Austria whilst additional military technology is installed in Koblenz.
