Rheinmetall unveils Survivor R armored vehicle for Police at EUROSATORY 2016

The Rheinmetall Defence unveils new Survivor R armored vehicle for Police during EUROSATORY 2016 exhibition.

The Survivor R delivers a perfectly balanced combination of mobility, protection and payload. Based on a militarized MAN TGM truck chassis and tried-and-tested engineering, the Survivor R uses only series-produced components, making it one of the most costeffective solutions available today.

Powered by a 330 hp (242 kW) high-sulphur fuel tolerant MAN diesel engine and exploiting the extensive all-wheel drive expertise of MAN and Achleitner, the Survivor R combines excellent mobility and driving/handling characteristics in all operating environments.


The armoured monocoque cabin provides a very high level of protection and one of the largest internal volumes in its class. With an unladen weight of 11,000 kg and a military payload of 4,000 kg, the Survivor R offers an outstanding payload-to-weight ratio in the 15,000 kg vehicle class.

This combination of protection, workspace and payload makes Survivor R the ideal platform for requirements involving various mission kits and complex systems integrations.
