Mercedes Benz will supply 515 Mercedes Benz G-class 300 CDI vehicles, “12kN AASLT” to the Dutch Military.
The vehicles provided by Mercedes are a replacement for the G-model off-road vehicles used by the military over the past twenty years. Deliveries are set to begin in 2021 and end by 2023. The vehicles (1200 kg payload air assault vehicles) can be transported to their place of deployment by Chinook helicopters as either internal or external cargo. 550 more 12kN AASLTs could be purchased through to the year 2030, Mercedes Benz said in a statement Tuesday.
