German Army Orders 80 Ambulance-Variant EAGLE 6x6 Vehicles from General Dynamics
EAGLE 6x6 Light Tactical Vehicle (LTV)

The German procurement agency, BAAINBw has awarded General Dynamics European Land Systems (GDELS) $159 million for the delivery of 80 highly protected EAGLE 6x6 vehicles for the German Army’s ambulance corps.

The EAGLE 6x6 Light Tactical Vehicle (LTV) was selected in a competitive tender process under the medium protected ambulance vehicle program, which will close the gap between the user´s light and heavy ambulance vehicle fleet. In its 6x6 configuration, the vehicle provides a more spacious user compartment and more payload.

Germany is the second customer for this new EAGLE version after the Swiss Army. “For the German program, a significant part of the production will be completed in Kaiserslautern and Sembach with the involvement of dozens of German suppliers,” the company said in a statement Wednesday.

The other variants of the LTV include APC (armoured personnel carrier), command and control vehicle, reconnaissance, NBC (Nuclear, Biological and Chemical) detection, mortar carrier, recovery and logistics transport vehicle.
