Almost 1,000 Vehicles Delivered to Germany in Last Decade
On 4 September Iveco Defence Vehicles announced that it has delivered the 100th TRAKKER GTF 8×8 to the Bundeswehr at its Ulm facility.
The vehicle is part of an order placed in 2015 for a total of 133 TRAKKERs as part of the Bundeswehr’s Geschützte Transportfahrzeuge (GTF) procurement programme, with delivery scheduled to take place over four years. The TRAKKER, renowned for its high mobility, also features a protected cab offering the highest levels of ballistic, mine and IED protection and is available in five different configurations, including ISO container compatible, some with hydraulic cranes and winch systems.
“This 100th vehicle seals the already strong relationship between Iveco Defence Vehicles and the German MoD, one of our most important customers,” stressed the company’s President & CEO, Vincenzo Giannelli.
Over the last decade, the company has delivered nearly 1,000 vehicles to the German Army from its wide product range, which have already been extensively fielded in operational areas such as Afghanistan and Mali. Recent contract awards with the Bundeswehr also include 280 EUROCARGO 4×4 trucks to be delivered in 2018.
