Rheinmetall releases new video of Lynx KF41 fighting vehicle

On Thursday, German defense conglomerate Rheinmetall has released its new official video showing a Lynx KF41 infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) during her test at NATO Excercise Brave Warrior in Hungary.

Rheinmetall posted the video show the Lynx KF41 that is taking part in the NATO Excercise Brave Warrior on 22nd September 2020.

As noted by the company, it is a milestone for LYNX team to see the vehicle in a live theatre with allied troops for the first time.


“We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the troops!” it said in a statement.

Lynx is a next-generation, tracked armored fighting vehicle designed to address the critical challenges of the future battlefield. The vehicle provides ample growth capacity to support new technologies over its lifetime, and features lower life-cycle costs.

In mid-September, the Hungarian Ministry of Defence has awarded Rheinmetall an order to supply tracked armoured vehicles and related products and services with a total value of more than €2 billion. The contractual agreement, which has now been signed in Budapest, encompasses 218 Lynx KF41 infantry fighting vehicles and nine Buffalo armoured recovery vehicles.

Furthermore, the Raytheon Rheinmetall Land Systems, a joint venture formed by Raytheon Company and Rheinmetall Defence, has submitted its Lynx vehicle for the U.S. Army’s new Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle, or OMFV, program.
