RMMV to supply HX2 trucks to Germany

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


Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles is to supply more than 2,200 logistics vehicles to the German armed forces under a framework agreement with the Federal Office for Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support, the company announced on 6 July.

The seven year framework contract covers a total of 2,271 HX2 family vehicles with a value of around €900 million.

An initial lot of 558 trucks has been ordered, including special tools and training support.

Key components such as the engines, axles, transmissions and build-ons will be manufactured in Germany, though the vehicles will be assembled at the RMMV plant in Vienna. Delivery of the first lot is scheduled to take place between 2018 and 2021.

The new HX2 vehicles are set to replace the old KAT I generation of trucks made by MAN.
