Titus is the latest generation of 6x6 armored vehicles designed by Nexter to answer the support and transport vehicles needs of modern armies offering high level of protection, mobility and versatility, as well as controlled ownership cost. Titus mobility chain was developed in cooperation with Czech supplier Tatra Trucks. A “Homeland Security” kit is available, matching more specifically the needs of police and security forces.

Nexter’s Titus offers a high degree of protection, with the ability to withstand a 50kg IED blast, which can be increased with an add-on protection kit. The vehicle has range of 700 km and is powered by a Cummins 500hp engine, which offers a maximum speed of 110 km/h. The platform can be equipped with a remote-controlled weapon system.

Titus and Czech Republic MoD’s order is about 3 variants of Titus: command post (CP),  transmissions/signals, and artillery fire coordination post. Eldis (CSG Group), Nexter’s partner for this Czech contract, implements the main contract with the Czech MoD and organizes the licensed local production. This order consecrates a successful European industrial cooperation, combining in a balanced manner the know-how of all involved partners.
