New military Medium Multipurpose EUROCARGO 4×4 Euro 6 compliant trucks
Iveco Defence Vehicles received a significant order from the German BwFuhrpark Service GmbH (a limited company given charge of servicing the vehicle fleet of the German Armed Forces – Bundeswehr) for a new fleet of military medium multipurpose 4×4 trucks for the German Army.
The order encompasses the delivery of 280 EUROCARGO trucks within 2018. The announcement, made on 12 December 2017, was a result of two years of intensive market evaluation and comprehensive practical trials with a demonstrator vehicle. The new military EUROCARGO is a MLL 150 E 28 WS vehicles and will be supplied with an unprotected long-distance-driver cab with a highly comfortable new seating arrangement, flexible storage for radio systems and soldier equipment, off-road single tyres, a roof hatch, a NATO-blackout-light, trailer version, a spare wheel carrier and an innovative multipurpose swap-body-frame to support multi-mission-operations outside Germany.
All vehicles will be fully Euro 6 emission compliant, including full single-fuel-operation-capability and offer a, what the company calls, best-in-class payload. Over the last decade, Iveco Defence Vehicles has delivered nearly 1,000 vehicles to the German Army from its wide product range (4×2, 4×4, 6×2, 6×4, 6×6 and 8×8), which have already been extensively fielded in operational areas such as Afghanistan and Mali. Recent contract awards with the Bundeswehr also include 133 armoured TRAKKER 8×8 trucks.
