Brand new logistic trucks for Ukraine

22. December 2022

At the behest of the German government, Rheinmetall is supplying Ukraine with brand new HX 8×8 trucks. In total, 26 of these high-mobility hookloading vehicles will be transferred to Ukraine. The order value is in the double-digit million Euro range. Delivery of the vehicles has already begun.

Made by Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles, the HX family is among the most widely used range of military trucks anywhere. Over 15,000 vehicles are now in service worldwide. A military-off-the-shelf family of vehicles, HX trucks are systematically designed for maximum durability, mobility, ease of use and modularity, effectively placing them in a class of their own.

Rheinmetall is already involved in several activities in support of Ukraine. In 2023, with the backing of the German government, Rheinmetall subsidiary Zeppelin Mobile Systeme GmbH will be supplying Ukraine with a turnkey field hospital.
