The Peruvian Army's 1st Cavalry Brigade received 10 new Rheinmetall Man Military Vehicles (RMMV) on 14 January.
Peru has acquired 338 4x4 utility vehicles that can transport 5-10 tonnes of cargo, which are destined for the army and navy. IHS Jane's reported on 25 August that a first batch of 63 trucks had arrived, 20 of which were given to the army's 3rd Division, headquartered in Arequipa in southern Peru.
