Tactics and logistics – military vehicles
Tactics and logistics: The Vehicle Systems division offers a field-proven and versatile vehicle portfolio on wheels and tracks. This includes combat, support, logistics and special vehicles and is constantly evolving. The division is divided into the following business units: Tactical Vehicles and Logistic Vehicles. Sensors, guidance systems, protection technologies and effectors from the partner divisions turn Rheinmetall's wheeled and tracked vehicles into highly effective systems.

These include the highly mobile, well protected and modular Lynx KF41 medium tracked vehicle family, the Marder infantry fighting vehicle, the Kodiak armoured engineer vehicle based on the Leopard 2 chassis and the Büffel 3 armoured recovery vehicle, as well as the new Puma Bundeswehr infantry fighting vehicle manufactured in industrial cooperation. Representatives of the tactical wheeled vehicles include the Fuchs armoured transport vehicle or the Boxer 8x8 armoured transport vehicle produced in industrial cooperation. Tower solutions such as the Lance and special laboratories for CBRN defence round off the range.
