LONDON, Jan. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire

 

Iveco Defence Vehicles, the defence and civil protection brand of CNH Industrial, announced two important contracts signed in December 2017.

 

The first of these contracts marked a significant order from the German BwFuhrpark Service GmbH for a new fleet of military medium multipurpose 4x4 trucks for the German Army. The order foresees the delivery of 280 Eurocargo trucks within 2018.

 

A further contract was signed with the Romanian Ministry of National Defence for the delivery of 173 military logistic vehicles, to be completed within 2018.

 

Over the last decade, Iveco Defence Vehicles 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. The latest order for MLL 150 E 28 WS vehicles 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 tires, 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 best-in-class payload. The contract between Iveco Defence Vehicles and BwFuhrpark Service GmbH is the result of two years of intensive market evaluation and comprehensive practical trials with a demonstrator vehicle. Other recent contract awards with the Bundeswehr also include 133 armored Trakker-8x8 trucks. Both are further testament to Iveco Defence Vehicles' leadership in technical and economic terms.

 

The contract with the Romanian Ministry of National Defence consists of purpose designed 6x6 military logistic vehicles from Iveco Defence Vehicles' high mobility truck range. Designed as troop and transport carriers with a self-recovery winch, the vehicles offer exceptional mobility (Central Tire Inflation System included) and fording capability to provide tactical support to any military operation. Moreover they are C-130 air transportable. It results from the Ministry's full satisfaction with the performance and reliability of the 57 vehicles ordered in 2015, consisting of high mobility trucks, which have been already fielded in Romanian territory.

 

With these contracts, the solid, established and trusted relationships between the German and Romanian Armed Forces and Iveco Defence Vehicles are further extended, enhancing the company's position as a key defence partner.

Le premier porteur polyvalent terrestre est arrivé !

21/06/2013 Armée de Terre

 

Le lundi 24 juin 2013, l’armée de Terre se verra remettre les clefs du premier véhicule de série du programme d’armement porteur polyvalent terrestre (PPT). Ce camion de nouvelle génération comprendra, pour la version protégée, les moyens de faire face aux menaces des conflits actuels (IED...).

 

Iveco Defence Vehicles et son partenaire français Soframe – filiale du groupe alsacien Lohr SA – livreront, à la section technique de l’armée de Terre (STAT) de Versailles, le 24 juin 2013, le premier des 200 camions commandés.

 

Le porteur polyvalent terrestre offre des capacités nouvelles, entre autres une protection renforcée pour les équipages, un armement permettant de répondre aux menaces sur les convois logistiques et un pré-équipement pour recevoir un brouilleur.

 

Résultat d’un contrat passé par la direction générale de l’armement (DGA), le programme PPT est le fruit d’une réflexion poussée, issue des retours sur expériences des récents théâtres d’opérations (Afghanistan notamment) où les convois logistiques encourent les mêmes risques que les unités de combat.

 

Répondant au besoin des forces de disposer de moyens logistiques protégés capables de s’insérer dans la manœuvre interarmes, le PPT remplacera à terme les véhicules de transport logistique (VTL) et les TRM 10000.

 

La cérémonie de remise des clés sera présidée par le général de brigade Poëdras, directeur de la STAT (section technique de l’armée de Terre), et l’ingénieur général Luzeaux, de la DGA (Direction Générale de l’armement).

BAE Systems' and Iveco Defence Vehicles' 8x8 MPC vehicle has been put through its paces during 12 days of intense testing, which included amphibious sorties.

 

The 8x8 MPC trials were part of the USMC's MPC (Marine Personnel Carrier) assessment programme and, according to those involved, went extremely well. Various aspects of the 8x8 MPC's capabilities were explored during the Water Performance, Stowage Capacity and Human Factors stages.

 

According to BAE Systems, all criteria envelopes were exceeded, with the 8x8 MPC showing that it could be exited by a full personnel load within 17 seconds and accommodate enough equipment to support a three-day long battlefield engagement without compromising its own safety or that of those on board.

 

8x8 MPC Trials

 

The 8x8 MPC trials were staged at Camp Pendleton's AVTB (Amphibious Vehicle Test Branch) in California. In their wake, further 8x8 MPC testing's now in prospect, this time at the Automotive Test Center in Nevada.

 

The BAE Systems' MPC's roots lie in Iveco's SUPERAV design. Constructed specifically for the USMC, it combines performance, payload and protection into a package intended to serve alongside the JLTV (Joint Light Tactical Vehicle), ACV (Amphibious Combat Vehicle) and AAV (Assault Amphibious Vehicle).

 

Marine Personnel Carrier

 

The USMC Marine Personnel Carrier programme is aiming to deliver a new amphibious vehicle design into service in 2015. Four vehicles are presenting in the running to win it, including the SAIC Terrex and the Lockheed Martin Havoc.

 

"The highly experienced team of BAE Systems and IVECO presented an impressive 26-ton, open-ocean, swim-capable vehicle that exceeded all projected vehicle requirements", BAE Systems' MPC programme director, John Swift, explained in a company press release.

 

"Despite a demanding programme, our MPC was completed on schedule and on budget. It will provide our Marine Corps customer with a highly manoeuvrable solution both in water and on land, with excellent amphibious capabilities and a high level of survivability."
