It has today been announced that the Czech Republic Ministry of Defence has signed the acquisition contract for 62 Nexter TITUS 6×6 armoured vehicles.
Press Release, Satory, 11 July 2019: Nexter, a KNDS company, European leader in land defence, partook today to the signature ceremony of the acquisition of 62 TITUS armoured vehicles at the Czech Ministry of Defense (MoD).
TITUS is the latest generation of 6×6 armoured vehicles, conceived by Nexter to answer the support and transport vehicles needs of modern armies offering high level of protection, mobility and versatility, as well as controlled ownership cost. TITUS’ mobility chain was developed in cooperation with Czech supplier Tatra Trucks. A ‘Homeland Security’ kit is available, answering more specifically to the needs of police and security forces.
Czech MoD’s order is about three variants of TITUS : Commanding Post (CP), Transmissions [Communications], and Artillery Fire Coordination Post.
ELDIS (CSG Group), Nexter’s partner for this Czech Republic project, carries the main contract with the MoD and will organise the licensed local production. This order consecrates a successful European industrial cooperation, combining in a balanced manner the know-how of all involved partners.
Nexter’s teams are proud to participate in the armed forces’ modernisation of a partner of growing importance to France within NATO, and express their gratitude towards the Czech Republic for their trust.
