Rheinmetall Canada and Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles (RMMV) have joined hands with Navistar Defence Canada, dubbed as Team 45⁰ North (45⁰N), in pursuit of Canada’s Logistics Vehicle Modernization (LVM) project – an initiative that will revitalize the Canadian Army’s light and heavy logistics vehicle capabilities.
Drawing on more than 200 years of combined expertise in developing technical solutions in the realm of defense and vehicle programs in Canada, Team 45⁰N brings together two premier military vehicle manufacturers and a world-class integrator to offer the Canadian Army battle-tested trucks that are purpose-built for military use.
With its members’ extensive experience in various logistics vehicle solutions and the execution of complex defense projects, Team 45⁰N offers a low-risk, high-quality solution for Canada’s LVM project.
Bringing unique skills and deep knowledge to the team, RMMV has successfully developed, built, and serviced military vehicles around the globe for more than a century.
Navistar Defence Canada rounds out Team 45⁰N, offering significant experience in working with the Canadian government. Navistar Defence Canada delivered 1 300 militarized commercial-off-the-shelf (MilCOTS) vehicles to the Canadian Department of National Defence for the Medium Support Vehicle System (MSVS) project to support domestic and expeditionary missions.
It continues to provide logistic support through its vast parts and service network across Canada. The company also supplied the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) with armored personnel carriers to provide increased protection and rescue capabilities for RCMP officers and members of the public in high-risk situations.
In collaboration with its partners, Team 45⁰N will offer a comprehensive LVM solution that fulfills the Canadian Army’s logistics mission profile, specifically designed to meet military requirements – durability, protection, payload capacity, mobility, and all-terrain capability.
RMMV’s HX series of tactical trucks already have a successful track record globally and has a well-established group of user nations, including Canada’s close allies (Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom) as well as other NATO nations (Germany, Norway, Denmark) and western countries (Austria, Sweden).
Thanks to the alliance’s exceptional product offering, extensive experience in working with the Canadian Armed Forces, and its commitment to Canadian economic growth, Team 45⁰N is the solution of choice for Canada’s LVM project, as well as all other future logistic vehicle initiatives.
