14th January 2020 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rheinmetall will supply the German military with 1,000 additional logistic vehicles under an order worth €382 million, announced on 13 January.

The order is the third placed under a framework contract signed in July 2017 for the Bundeswehr’s Unprotected Transport Vehicles project.

Rheinmetall will deliver vehicles from the RMMV HX family; 675 with a five-ton payload, and the remaining 325 with a load-carrying capacity of 15 tons.

Featuring a basic military configuration, these robust, off-road-capable vehicles will be available to support the Bundeswehr’s Very High Readiness Joint Task Force 2023 mission.

The seven-year framework contract covers up to 2,271 vehicles from RMMV’s HX family. To date 558 vehicles were ordered in 2017, a further 252 vehicles followed in May 2019, and another 60 in November 2019.
