Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles (RMMV) will supply the Danish 14 Armed Forces with heavy armored repair and recovery vehicles.
Weighing about 36 tons, a heavy tactical recovery vehicle is based on the tried and tested 8x8 RMMV SX45 chassis that combines exceptional stability, safety and crew comfort, along with outstanding maneuverability, whether on road or on rough terrain. Thanks to Miller's integrated recovery module, the RMMV repair and recovery vehicle quickly and safely, even in the most extreme conditions, is able to pull out heavy, stray vehicles weighing up to 40 tons or lift containers weighing up to 17 tons. Thus, the HTRV RMMV ideally complements the range of equipment adopted by modern armies: many tactical and logistical vehicles with protective modules deployed in various operations have become heavier, which places higher demands on repair-evacuation indicators.
The third level of ballistic and the third level of mine protection ensures the safety of the crew from small-arms fire weapons and improvised explosive devices.
The HTRV RMMV recovery module is manufactured by the American company Miller Industries Towing Equipment Inc from Ooltewah, Tennessee. Miller is the world leader in repair and recovery vehicles. The RMMV repair and recovery vehicle is equipped with a heavy rotator and a crane with a lifting capacity of 75 tons, as well as two independently controlled Rotzler HZ090 winches and a Rotzler TR200 main recovery winch with 30-and ton pull forces. The machine also has various equipment designed to perform specific tasks. The integration of the Miller recovery module will take place at the MAN Trucks Bus in Denmark, which is a 100% offset transaction.
The Danish armed forces will be the first in Europe to adopt the HTRV RMMV. Denmark already possesses a number of tactical and logistical vehicles from the HX and SX family of RMMV.
Deliveries will begin in the first quarter of 2014, and it is planned to finish them in the second quarter of 2015.
