DSEI 2019: New Iveco Protected Vehicles for Dutch Armed Forces

Significant Component of Defence-wide Wheeled Vehicle Replacement Programme

Iveco Defence Vehicles announced on 12 September that it has been awarded a contract by the Dutch Ministry of Defence MoD) to provide 1,275 medium multirole protected vehicles, designated 12kN. The acquisition is part of the Defence-wide Replacement Programme of Wheeled Vehicles (DVOW – Defensiebrede Vervanging Operationele Wielvoertuigen), with deliveries scheduled from 2022-2026.

The Iveco Defence Vehicles’ Medium Tactical Vehicle (MTV) is designed to combine high tactical 4×4 mobility, optimal off-road performance and high crew protection, together with an excellent payload capability. Excellent modularity and system integration capabilities are guaranteed across all range variants such as hard-top, soft-top, pick-up, casualty transport and personnel transport, in order to support a wide variety of military users.

High reliability, ease of maintenance and low through-life-cycle costs were core requirements during the design of MTV, guiding the choice of main assemblies towards components with proven performance and reliability over many millions of kilometres in the most diversified and demanding environmental conditions.

Over the years, Iveco Defence Vehicles has delivered many vehicles to the Dutch Army from its wide commercial and military product range such as the Iveco STRALIS 6×2 long haulage lorries, the TRAKKER 8×8 for the Army’s Fire Department and the EuroCargo 4×4 delivered to the Dutch Marines for the Caribbean territories.

This award represents an important milestone in consolidation of the strategic partnership between the Dutch MoD and Iveco Defence Vehicles.
