IDEX 2019: Rheinmetall impresses with its truck technology.

| 2019

Modern logistic vehicles have to meet a wide range of performance criteria when it comes to robustness, versatility and reliability – no matter how bad the roads or tough the terrain. Increasingly important, too, are flexible and scalable protection solutions for keeping crewmembers safe from a variety of rapidly evolving threats. Made by Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles, the heavy-duty trucks of the TGS, TGM and HX series meet these criteria. Rheinmetall is showcasing a TG militarized and a HX military truck at IDEX 2019.

The TGM and TGS model series are based on the globally proven MAN Trucknology generation. At the cutting edge of commercial truck technology, they set the international standard for robust design and innovative engineering. Originating in large-scale production runs, they have already put in millions of development kilometres. Vehicles destined for the world’s armed forces and security services are hardened to stand up to demanding conditions. TGM and TGS both offer an excellent price-performance ratio and are superbly well suited for civil use and military operations alike.

The versatile TGM-MIL and TGS-MIL vehicles can operate in all climatic zones at temperatures ranging from -32°C to +49°C. As NATO mobility class ‘C’ logistical vehicles, they combine excellent off-road performance with a fording capability of up to 75 centimetres. Tried and tested, their multi-fuel engines can run on diesel with up to 3,000 ppm, as well as fuels like F34, F54 and D-50.

Their heavy carrying capacity enables a wide array of different superstructures. Most of these are commercial off the shelf systems, and thus safe and easy to operate. Possible configurations include hook-lift/interchangeable pallet carriers, cargo vehicles, dump trucks, mobile cranes, fire-fighting vehicles, tankers for fuel or water, troop carriers maintenance vehicles and recovery systems. All of these configurations have proven highly effective in all climatic zones. The vehicles are therefore extremely well equipped to serve in a disaster relief role, too, meeting the full range of requirements for dual use vehicles.

Last but not least, TGM and TGS vehicles are economical to operate. Today the armed forces of over fifty nations place their trust in these trucks, more than 80,000 of which are in service worldwide.
