Rheinmetall enters Bundeswehr body swap framework contract

19th June 2020 - 10:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rheinmetall has secured a major order for logistic vehicles from Germany’s Federal Office for Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw).

The value of the agreement is approximately €2 billion ($2.24 billion).

The framework contract will see the company deliver 4,000 swap body systems, which will also include armoured cabs, between 2021 and 2027.

Initially, 540 vehicles will be provided at an estimated cost of €340 million including VAT. At least 230 of these will be protected.

These are due to be delivered in time for Germany to assume leadership of NATO’s Very High Readiness Joint Task Force (VJTF) in 2023.

Protected body swap systems elevate the vehicles survivability whilst enhancing its tactical flexibility and sustainability.
