The German Bundeswehr ordered a thousand logistic vehicles from Rheinmetall worth €382 million. This is the third call-off from a framework contract signed on July 5, 2017, which runs for a period of seven years and encompasses a total of 2,271 vehicles from Rheinmetall’s HX family as part of the Bundeswehr’s “Unprotected Transport Vehicles” project. Of the 1,000 vehicles just ordered, 675 have a five-ton payload, while the remaining 325 have a load-carrying capacity of 15 tons. Starting this month, the trucks will be built at the Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles GmbH (RMMV) plant in Vienna, with delivery to be complete by the end of this year.
