The vehicles on order are tractor-trailers based on the successful, operationally proven HX81 from Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles (RMMV).

Unlike many comparable vehicles, RMMV’s HX family consists of military-off-the-shelf (MOTS) products. They combine tried-and-tested, dependable components from large-scale production runs, specially customized to meet the most exacting military requirements. Around 12,000 of these vehicles are currently in service worldwide. Among others, the group of user nations now includes the UK, Denmark and New Zealand. Like Sweden and Norway, Australia has also placed large-volume orders with RMMV in recent years. When it comes to logistical interoperability, this significantly facilitates multinational military operations.

The new order underscores once again Rheinmetall’s growing reputation as a developer, manufacturer and supplier of tactical and logistic vehicles.
