Designed to recover main battle tanks, it can also carry out a wide range of maintenance tasks and support operations thanks to its winch and bulldozer blade. Fully integrated into the Leopard 2 supply chain, future-proof engineering and excellent growth potential characterize this cutting-edge vehicle.

Deployed in operations worldwide, the ARV 3 Büffel (‘buffalo’) is built on the same chassis as the Leopard 2 MBT, meaning that it delivers the same superb mobility and engine output. As a result, there is no need for the kind of complex, risk-fraught modification of the powerpack that would be necessary if the Bergepanzer 2 ARV were used to support the Leopard 2 fleet.

As the original equipment manufacturer of the Büffel 3, Rheinmetall is the only company worldwide that possesses the full set of technical drawings. Today the armed forces of eleven nations field the Büffel 3, benefitting from Rheinmetall’s unsurpassed expertise in ARV development and design. Thanks to the armoured recovery vehicle subgroup of Leopard 2 user nations (LEOBEN ARV AG T/NU), all participants profit from this wealth of operational experience.

The main characteristics of the ARV 3 PL are high towing capacity, high winching performance, powerfull lifting capability, high level of crew survivability.
