The Fuchs Evolution armoured transport vehicle
An icon fit for the future
The Fuchs Evolution is the logical advancement of the tried-and-tested Fuchs armoured transport vehicle1.
Mobility, protection and reliability are the key features of Rheinmetall’s 6x6 armoured platform. The Fuchs Evolution builds on the proven vehicle DNA and carries it into the future with significant improvements.
The vehicle system’s range of capabilities is designed for a variety of customer-specific tasks.
Rheinmetall Fuchs Evolution – Mission-Proofed
Familiar operation with future-proof design
The Bundeswehr has been using the Fuchs armoured transport vehicle for decades, and internationally it is also used in many different variants.
During its period of use, the vehicle platform was continuously modernised and adapted to new threats and operational scenarios. The Fuchs Evolution now sets itself apart from its predecessors thanks to fundamental automotive improvements. A more powerful drive train, digital architecture and more space bring the Fuchs up to date and make it fit for future requirements.
Serviceable for the next 20 years
The Fuchs Evolution offers a full obsolescence clean-up of the vehicle system, ensuring the duty for the next decades. Rheinmetall will provide thorough technical and logistical support to ensure the permanent availability of the required assemblies and spare parts
The usual variety at the cutting edge of technology
The Fuchs Evolution armoured transport vehicle can adopt the existing installation kits of the introduced TPz Fuchs family. Based on the flexibility in the interior design and the high capacity in electrical, mechanical and hydraulic energy, almost any type of mission kit can be implemented on the Fuchs Evolution.
Possible vehicle variants include:
- Group transport vehicle Ambulance
- Engineer vehicle Surveillance and reconnaissance
- Command vehicle Electronic warfare
- Artillery observer Explosive ordnance disposal
High mobile lifesaver
The evolution stage as a high-roof variant is already noticeable externally thanks to the modernised vehicle design and the increased roof height. With this variant, a wide range of functional capabilities for national and allied defence can be implemented. In the version as a protected ambulance vehicle, the Fuchs Evolution fulfils the configurations according to DIN EN 1789 as a patient transport ambulance, emergency ambulance and rescue vehicle.
The Fuchs Evolution can transport up to four injured: two lying, two sitting. This is achieved by increasing the interior height of the transport compartment to 1.60m, which allows an improved seating and carrying system. Together with the digital radio equipment, voice and data radio with authorities and emergency services can be realised, which enables civil-military cooperation during disaster operations.
