Jankel is presenting its new Light Tactical Transport Vehicle (LTTV) at the Defence and Security Equipment International exhibition (DSEI 2019), being held in London on 10-13 September.
The company announced in March 2018 that the Belgian Ministry of Defence (MoD) had awarded Jankel a contract for 199 LTTVs, which the ministry said includes several years of technical support. The vehicles are scheduled to be delivered in 2019-21.
Based on the Mercedes UNIMOG 4×4 chassis, the LTTV features removable mission modules enabling it to be quickly rerolled, according to a Jankel press release dated 4 September.
The company said the LTTV has a payload of over three tonnes, depending on the version, and exists in three core special forces variants, including ambulance. Military subsystems integrated into the vehicle include a removable ballistic protection kit, a roll-over protection system, weapon mounts, and communications fit and other mission systems.
