Feasibility Study TOKEH Light Tactical Mission Vehicle
Underscoring the company's role as Europe's leading supplier of systems and equipment for ground forces, the TOKEH is a valuable addition to Rheinmetall's portfolio of high-mobility vehicles for special operations forces, an important tool of international crisis management.
The Global Soldier Modernization Market 2015-2025
Developed in-house by Rheinmetall Landsysteme GmbH, Europe's top maker of wheeled and tracked armoured vehicles, this state-of-the-art vehicle set new standards in a number of respects. The TOKEH is part of Rheinmetall's systematic response to the altered mission requirements of today's armed forces.
Transportable in a NH 90 helicopter, the TOKEH is a highly mobile 4-wheel drive vehicle, equipped with innovative height-adjustable suspension system.
Based on a platform carefully dimensioned to match the NH 90, RLS developed the TOKEH specifically to meet the need of the special operations forces of Germany.
It carries a two-man crew. The vehicle's outstanding off-road mobility and numerous special equipment features - including run-flat tyres - ensure that special operations teams can operate and keep on the move even under the most gruelling conditions.
Moreover, the TOKEH can be mounted with a light machinegun, manned by the vehicle commander. The vehicle is powered by a 2.3 litre-diesel engine, which - in conformity with Euro III norms - delivers excellent performance coupled with low fuel consumption.
Completed extremely quickly, the TOKEH project demonstrates in compelling fashion Rheinmetall Defence's efficiency and innovative strength as a reliable partner of the armed forces of Germany, its allies and other likeminded nations.
