The German defense ministry and Iveco Defence Vehicles finalized a framework contract earlier this month for the delivery of up to 1.048 military Trakker trucks to the German armed forces.
The 8×8 vehicles are to be delivered between 2021 and 2028, with the first batch consisting of 224 units.
The militarized Trakker range of vehicles will be supplied in five different configurations prepared for 20” – ISO-container-transport, some with hydraulic cranes and winch systems.
All vehicles will be supplied with a protected cab which offers ballistic, mine, NBC- and IED protection.
Over the last years, Iveco Defence Vehicles has delivered around 2.000 vehicles from its wide product range to the German Army, including protected customized versions (e.g. GTF 8×8 batch 1 and 2, TEP-90, STW-8×8, Tipper-8×8, Sideloader-8×8, ISO-container-transport-8×8 and Tractor-6×6), which have already been extensively fielded in operational theatres.
