Jankel has secured a contract from the Belgium Ministry of Defence (BeMOD) to supply the country’s military with a new fleet of specialist tactical vehicles.
The contract will see Jankel execute the delivery of 199 Light Troop Transport Vehicles (LTTV) using the Mercedes UNIMOG platform to the Belgium army.
The LTTV will be designed by Jankel’s team of engineers to provide a modular vehicle solution that will benefit from unique removable mission modules that enable the vehicle to be re-rolled for operational platform versatility. Alongside a fully integrated suite of military sub-systems that includes a removable ballistic protection kit, a Roll Over Protection System (ROPS), weapon mounts and communications fit, the platform will provide full interoperability with the FOX RRV fleet.
Commenting on the contract, Mike Mullen, Jankel’s Managing Director said: “This is great news for British industry. Jankel excels at selecting and converting the right commercially available base chassis into exceptional military grade vehicles, and this programme reflects our position as a leading provider of such military platforms, not just in the UK, but across Europe.”
Daniel Crosby, Commercial Director at Jankel stated: “It’s an exciting programme that is very much in line with Jankel’s business growth strategies. Our team worked extremely hard on this opportunity, and I’m sure our flexibility and ability to listen and respond quickly to Customer needs helped to offer a high value for money proposition which ultimately secured this contract against highly regarded competition. We are thrilled and very proud to be continuing to deliver leading tactical vehicles to BeMOD.”
