Supacat and Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles Netherlands (RMMV NL) have teamed to offer Dutch-built Supacat Protected Vehicles for the 12kN air assault vehicle (AASLT) and a 12kN light-weight protected vehicle requirements as part of the Defence-wide Wheeled Vehicle Replacement Programme (DVOW) with the Dutch Army.
Under the teaming agreement and upon contract award, the Supacat-designed vehicles will be built by RMMV NL and the production line will be supported by their existing supply chain in the Netherlands.

“Cooperation between Supacat and RMMV meets the requirements of this programme for the Dutch Army,” stated Coen van Leeuwen, Managing Director of RMMV NL, adding that, “a proven concept built in the Netherlands and supported by people who know how the Dutch Army operates is bound to succeed.”
