Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles (RMMV) is presenting a forward-looking protection concept for logistic vehicles at the NIDV defense fair in the Netherlands, the company said in a statement.
Developed by Austrian manufacturer Ressenig Fahrzeugbau GmbH and approved by RMMV, the Discreet Armoured Cabin (DAC) can be mounted on the proven TGS chassis.
Rheinmetall’s entry in the Netherland’s planned procurement project for Defense-wide Replacement Operational Wheeled Vehicles (DVOW) is the globally tried-and-tested TGS 8x8.
This protected cabin is specifically designed to be inconspicuous, with an essentially civilian external appearance.
Nevertheless, this modular build-on cabin, available in a number of sizes, offers a degree of protection against ballistic fire, landmines and improvised explosive devices. When the TGS is equipped with a DAC, the level of protection is basically undetectable, thus maintaining the vehicle’s low-profile civilian appearance. This significantly enhances the vehicle’s operational versatility.
