Rheinmetall and KMW point the way with a trendsetting joint development project AMPV.

Rheinmetall Defence of Dusseldorf and Krauss-Maffei Wegmann of Munich have launched a joint programme to develop a highly protected new vehicle family in the 5- to 9-ton weight class. The first prototype of the four-wheel drive Armoured Multipurpose Vehicle (AMPV) systems was presented to government and military officials in Berlin in June 2009. A second prototype is set to be finished in October this year followed by in-house and army trials. The first version of the AMPV, a 9.3-ton patrol vehicle, will be ready for serial delivery by 2011. Responding to the Bundeswehr’s current GFF (“protected command and role-specific vehicle”) procurement programme, Rheinmetall and Krauss-Maffei Wegmann have developed a family of GFF 1/2-class vehicles that fully complies with user requirements. The two defence contractors are financing the development project on their own.
