The first reference vehicles for this logistics truck programme are already in Australia for a range of verification and testing activities. The HX77 8x8 with an integrated load handling system can be viewed at Rheinmetall’s stand.

The systems of the HX family, made by Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles (RMMV), rank among the highest performing and most cost-effective in their class. All HX vehicles are “military off the shelf” (MOTS) products specially developed for military applications. The HX series ensures extreme mobility and reliability even in the harshest terrain. RMMV’s HX MOTS vehicle family not only features outstanding mobility, protection and reliability, but also displays maximum modularity and interoperability.

The HX series sets a new yardstick in lifecycle costs and total cost of ownership. They are true tactical trucks with low maintenance costs due to their use of modified components from the commercial TGA range. At the same time, they have the necessary tactical advantages such as air transportability or easy application of adaptive armour. Although classified as a medium-mobility truck, the HX has exceeded all expectations and proved its capabilities in a variety of tests.
