Presents comprehensive range of law enforcement products
This year at GPEC 2018, Rheinmetall is displaying its comprehensive array of police and public security products.
The company is showcasing its SURVIVOR R protected special operations vehicle equipped with a multi-purpose observation turret. The vehicle, various versions of which are already in service with the state police forces of Saxony and Berlin, undergoes a dynamic demonstration.
Developed in cooperation with special vehicle maker Achleitner, the Rheinmetall MAN SURVIVOR R is based on a high-performance 4×4 MAN truck chassis fitted with a steel armour cab. Capable of reaching speeds of over 100km/h, the vehicle combines tried-and-tested automotive technology from major production runs with the latest force protection concepts from Rheinmetall.
An armoured monocoque cab with add-on protection elements can be individually and discreetly modified to meet evolving threat situations, while a ventilation system for filtering out nuclear, biological and chemical agents is standard equipment in every SURVIVOR R vehicle. Although it is extremely well protected, the external appearance of the law enforcement version of the SURVIVOR R is specifically designed to make a deescalating, non-military impression. Well lit and ergonomically designed, the interior is spacious enough to seat up to 11 personnel with their personal equipment as well as extensive C4I and communications equipment. This versatile vehicle can also be equipped with remotely operated multi-purpose stations.
Systematic use of off-the-shelf civilian parts and serially produced military components make the vehicle an affordable option, while users can rely on Rheinmetall MAN’s global service network for maintenance and repairs. This makes the SURVIVOR R a cost-effective, easy-to-maintain vehicle platform with low lifecycle costs and a high level of operational readiness.
