TenCate Advanced Armour supplies materials for vehicles Commando Corps

TenCate Advanced Armour supplies antiballistic materials for 50 new vehicles for the Dutch Commando Corps, the so-called Air Transportable Tactical Vehicles. Wednesday, July 3 the Defence Materiel Organization signed a contract with the Dutch company Defenture.

Apart from better road capability, the new Air Transportable Tactical Vehicles (ATTV) have more payload than the current vehicles. This is essential in view of the mandate of the Special Operations Forces. Explorations and attacks on enemy targets may need to be performed deep in enemy territory. At times there are severe geographical and climatic conditions, without logistical support from outside.

Because the Commando Corps can also be dropped by helicopters, the special forces vehicles can be transported in and under Chinook transport helicopters. ATTV vehicles can be equipped with several armor solutions of TenCate Advanced Armour.
