Iveco Defence Vehicles supplies 3rd generation GTF-8×8 trucks to the Bundeswehr


Bolzano, January 15, 2021

On January 2021 the German Bundeswehr – represented by BAAINBw (Federal Office of
Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support) – has awarded Iveco
Defence Vehicles a frame contract for the supply of up to 1.048 military Trakker trucks to be
delivered in 2021 – 2028.

The project will start with an initial fixed batch of 224 units of 8×8 vehicles from the Iveco
Defence militarized Trakker range, which will be supplied in five different configurations
prepared for 20” – ISO-container-transport, some with hydraulic cranes and winch systems, and
represents another new milestone and consequent next step in the GTF-family of the German

All vehicles fulfil the most modern EURO-6-emission-level (still ready for single-fuel-operation)
and will be supplied with a protected cab which currently offers among the best-in-class levels
of ballistic, mine, NBC- and IED protection. These cabs also provide the users with a high level
of crew comfort and are designed to accommodate a variety of modern military communication
and command systems.

Over the last years, Iveco Defence Vehicles has delivered around 2.000 vehicles from its wide
product range to the German Army, including protected customized versions (e.g. GTF 8×8
batch 1 and 2, TEP-90, STW-8×8, Tipper-8×8, Sideloader-8×8, ISO-container-transport-8×8 and
Tractor-6×6), which have already been extensively fielded in operational theatres.
Iveco Defence Vehicles is proud to continue its solid partnership with the German Army for the
years to come.
