Den­mark or­ders heavy tac­ti­cal re­cov­ery ve­hi­cles from RMMV

SP's MAI - - MILITARY UPDATES -

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.
