Denmark orders heavy tactical recovery vehicles from RMMV
Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles (RMMV) is supplying the Danish armed forces with 14 heavyweight protected recovery vehicles. Weighing some 36 tonnes, the heavy tactical recovery vehicle (HTRV) is based on the tried-andtested RMMV SX45 8x8 chassis, combining extreme stability, safety and crew comfort with outstanding manoeuvrability, whether on the road or in the toughest terrain.
Thanks to its integrated Miller recovery module, the RMMV HTVR is able to recover heavy disabled vehicles weighing up to 40 tonnes or containers weighing up to 17 tonnes—quickly and safely, even under the most extreme conditions. The RMMV HTRV thus ideally complements the array of equipment fielded by modern armies: many of the tactical and logistical vehicles with protective modules used in deployed operations today have become heavier, making a high-performance recovery capacity imperative.
Level 3/3 ballistic and anti-mine protection keep the crew safe from small arms fire and IED blasts.
The Danish armed forces will be the first on the European mainland to introduce the RMMV HTRV. Denmark already has a number of tactical and logistical vehicles from the company’s HX and SX families in its inventory. Delivery begins in the first quarter of 2014, and is scheduled to conclude in the second quarter of 2015.
