Supacat, RMMV NL team for Dutch army requirement

10th March 2017 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Supacat and Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles Netherlands (RMMV NL) have teamed up to offer vehicles for the Royal Netherlands Army's Defence-wide Wheeled Vehicle Replacement Programme (DVOW), the companies announced on 9 March.

The companies will offer Supacat-designed vehicles to be built by RMMV NL in the Netherlands.

The two requirements being targeted are the 12kN air assault vehicle (AASLT) and a 12kN light-weight protected vehicle. The army is seeking more than 500 12kN AASLTs and 900 12kN light-weight protected vehicles.

The production line would be supported by RMMV NL's existing supply chain in the Netherlands with substantial local content.

Phil Applegarth, head of Supacat, said: 'The teaming agreement is based on a strong collaborative platform and the allocation of responsibilities will be based on 'best for customer' criteria. Both companies have demonstrated their agility in forming a solution that delivers an outstanding in-country product, which supports Dutch jobs for a Dutch requirement.'
