Wheeled Armoured Vehicles

The international deployment of rapid reaction forces on peace-keeping and peace-enforcing missions is gaining increasing importance, thus raising the demand for light, mobile vehicles which offer appropriate protection for the crew in line with the threat faced.

Thanks to its flexibility, mobility and therefore rapid operational readiness, the range of wheeled armoured vehicles produced by Rheinmetall provides airmobile forces with ideal support.
