Press Release, Bolzano, 08 January 2020: Iveco Defence Vehicles, a subsidiary of CNH Industrial N.V., announces that on December 30, 2019 a first order of a frame agreement including more than 2,900 high mobility trucks has been signed with the Romanian Ministry of National Defence.

The frame contract includes four typologies of military logistic platforms from Iveco Defence Vehicles’ high mobility truck range: 4×4, 6×6, 8×8 and 8×8 Prime Mover, to be further declined in 16 different variants, among which approximately a third are with armoured cabin. Being equipped with Central Tyre Inflation System (CTIS), black-out lights, dual-fuel engines, self-recovery winches and tactical axles, they can offer exceptional mobility, fording capability and C-130 air transportability in order to provide tactical support to any military operation.

This important achievement is testament to the satisfaction of the Romanian Armed Forces with the two previous contracts for 57 high mobility trucks in 2015 and 173 in 2017, and contributes to further strengthen the relationship between the Romanian Ministry of National Defence and Iveco Defence Vehicles, enhancing the company’s position as a key military truck supplier.
