Rheinmetall has won a contract valued €250 million to deliver Fuchs/Fox 2 wheeled armored vehicles to an international customer.

The contract encompasses an initial supply of spare parts. Delivery will take place during the 2021-2023 timeframe, with production to be carried out in the partner’s country.

Fuchs vehicle can be configured as an armoured personnel carrier, a mobile command post, a field ambulance or for an NBC detection and reconnaissance role. The German Bundeswehr has fielded multiple versions of the Fuchs 1 ever since 1979, deploying over a hundred of these vehicles in Afghanistan and elsewhere. Its successor, the Fuchs 2, is an advanced version of the vehicle, featuring, among other things, a larger fighting compartment, a more powerful engine, an updated chassis, improved protection, and a digital electrical system.
