Rheinmetall has begun delivery of 342 roll-off tipper vehicles to the Bundeswehr, the company announced on 19 November.

The first 69 vehicles have already been transferred, with deliveries set to continue at the rate of eight vehicles per week until completion, anticipated for mid-2021. The order for these hook lift-equipped TGS 8x4 trucks was placed at the end of 2019 and is valued in the double-digit Euro range, making it the largest single order for so-called ‘white fleet’ (commercial) trucks in Rheinmetall history.

Now in serial production, these vehicles will give the Bundeswehr the ability to quickly transport a massive amount of materiel using its own trucks when Germany takes over the Very High Readiness Joint Task Force (VJTF) – NATO’s ‘sharp end’ – in 2023, Delivery of the TGS trucks will thus significantly expand the Bundeswehr’s logistic capabilities when it comes to the rapid handling of materiel. The vehicles will be stationed all over Germany, primarily with logistics units.
