Iveco Defence Vehicles, is to supply 2,900 high mobility trucks to the Romanian Ministry of National Defence. Initially 942 vehicles will be delivered over the next four years, starting from 2020.
The frame contract includes four types of military logistic platforms from Iveco Defence Vehicles’ high mobility truck range: 4×4, 6×6, 8×8 and 8×8 Prime Mover, to be further expanded in 16 different variants, among which approximately a third are armoured cabins.
Equipped with Central Tyre Inflation System (CTIS), black-out lights, dual-fuel engines, self-recovery winches and tactical axles, the new all-terrain vehicles can offer exceptional mobility, fording capability and C-130 air transportability in order to provide tactical support to any military operation.
This important achievement is testament to the satisfaction of the Romanian Armed Forces with the two previous contracts for 57 high mobility trucks in 2015 and 173 in 2017, and contributes to further strengthen the relationship between the Romanian Ministry of National Defence and Iveco Defence Vehicles, enhancing the company’s position as a key military truck supplier.
