The logistic is very important for modern armies in the battlefield, today’s fast-moving armies need to be sure that their supplies keep rolling. Contemporary asymmetric conflicts lack clearly defined front lines, confronting commanders and manufacturers of modern transport, command and multi-mission vehicles with new requirements regarding mobility, functionality and survivability. The systems of the HX family, made by Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles (RMMV), rank among the most cost-effective in their class.

Deployed around the world for decades and theatre-proven
Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles has a long history in developing and supplying military vehicles systems to armed forces worldwide.
The military-off-the-shelf concept of the HX family remains as compelling as ever, and these vehicles now form the logistic backbone of numerous armies around the globe.
In 2007 the British armed forces took delivery of the first of over 7,000 vehicles of the HX family, including 4x4, 6x6 and 8x8 versions. These support vehicles are replacing the old Leyland and Bedford trucks as well as the Foden recovery vehicles, which the SX 8x8 vehicle family is superseding.
The British have relied on the HX and SX vehicle families in Afghanistan since early 2008, having previously used them in Iraq. The response from all levels has been extremely positive.
