Rheinmetall releases new HX3 tactical truck
Rheinmetall has unveiled a new member of its HX3 family of heavy-duty tactical trucks.
The HX3 has been redesigned from the HX2 to provide better protection, improved mobility, enhanced driving comfort and a digital interface architecture for greater operational flexibility and future performance upgrades.
The HX3 is designed for operating under the most gruelling conditions. It features a robust chassis, a powerful engine and a new optional active rear axle suspension to improve performance on and off-road.
Rheinmetall designed the HX3 for logistic operations and tactical scenarios. As a result, it will be available in 4x4, 6x6, 8x8 and 10x10 versions.
New systems such as the fully automated load handling system and universal torsion-resistant subframe will enhance the truck’s classic logistics role.
The truck features artillery systems and an artillery truck interface making the 10x10 a potential standard for various artillery solutions.
Various assistance systems provide enhanced safety in everyday operations. Emergency brake assist, adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning will ensure the vehicle maintains operational viability well into the future.
The vehicle features a digital stealth mode for greater protection. If necessary, all data transmission and receiver functions can be switched off to reduce the vehicle’s digital signature.
