Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles GmbH (RMMV) announced Wednesday that it has signed a cooperation agreement with Polish defence contractor Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa SA (PGZ) and its subsidiary Obrum sp. z o.o. to develop an amphibious vehicle for the Polish military.
A state-of the-art 6x6 wheeled armoured vehicle is slated to replace the Soviet-era BRDM-2 still in service with the Polish Army. It is oriented to the requirements of the Polish Army’s LOTR (light armoured reconnaissance vehicle) procurement program.
Further, It is systematically designed to meet Poland’s and other nations’ future military needs. PGZ Chairman Wojciech Dabrowski said, “Propelled by the success of the Rosomak armoured transport vehicle, we launched this ambitious project, which will result in a new wheeled armoured vehicle.”
The new vehicle will benefit from the partner companies’ combined expertise in the world of wheeled armoured vehicles and military system solutions. Fully amphibious, the LOTR will feature a high level of protection and an excellent payload-to-total weight ratio.
With an authorized total weight of up to 20 tonnes, the new vehicle will have a carrying capacity of 3.5 tonnes, opening up a wide variety of options during reconnaissance missions and other military operations.
“We see this development contract as an important first step in a highly promising cross-border strategic alliance in the field of military wheeled vehicles”, declares Pietro Borgo, managing director of RMMV and member of the executive board of Rheinmetall Defense.
