Rheinmetall Wins €134 Million Tractor-Trailers Contract

Rheinmetall has won a €134 million to supply 110 HX81 tractor-trailers to an international customer.

The order has been earmarked for delivery between January 2018 and February 2019. Additional vehicle orders are expected.

The contract also includes comprehensive service and logistical support for a period of five years.

Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles (RMMV) HX family consists of military-off-the-shelf (MOTS) products. The trucks have a service life of at least twenty years and 300,000 km in military use. In compliance with STANAG norms, standard HX family vehicles can operate in climatic zones A1 to C2 that is at temperatures ranging from -46°C to +49°C.

They can also be adapted to operate under all other climate conditions. Moreover, it is possible to equip them with passive and active protection solutions without major reengineering work. New operational requirements and experienced gained in the field flow systematically into ongoing development work.

The HX family comes in variants from 4x4 to 10x10. Cargo trucks, tankers, heavy-duty recovery vehicles, system platforms, folding road-laying and bridge-laying systems.

In addition, the vehicle family concept results in largely identical operation as well as maintenance repair and spare part requirements, leading in turn to lower lifecycle costs.
