Survivor R is jointly developed by Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles (RMMV) and the Austrian vehicle-maker Achleitner, it features an NBC detection kit.
The SURVIVOR R offers users a perfectly balanced combination of mobility, protection and payload. Powered by a 330hp (242kW) high-sulphur fuel tolerant MAN diesel engine and making use of the combined all-wheel drive expertise of MAN and Achleitner, the Survivor R combines excellent mobility and driving/handling characteristics in all operating environments.
The monocoque cabin provides outstanding levels of protection, while offering one of the largest internal volumes in the 15,000 kg vehicle class. This combination of protection and workspace makes the SURVIVOR R the ideal platform for requirements involving various mission kits and complex systems integration. Based on comprehensively militarized MAN TGM truck chassis and automotives, the Survivor R uses only series-produced components, making it one of the most cost-effective solutions available today.
With through-life support based on the worldwide service, support and manufacturing networks of Rheinmetall and MAN, the Survivor R can offer users both supportabilities: high levels of operational availability and genuine service longevity.
Survivor R CBRN
Rheinmetall’s CBRN reconnaissance systems and vehicles provide the world’s most advanced means of countering CBRN attacks. The primary mission of Survivor R CBRN, the latest addition to the RMMV portfolio, will be to detect, identify, mark, sample and report chemical, biological and radiological contamination and provide forecast information to units deployed in the area of operations.
The Survivor R CBRN is equipped with fully automated detectors for nuclear radiation as well as sensors for identifying chemical warfare agents and other hazardous materials. These include a remote standoff sensor for detecting distant clouds of chemical agents, providing immediate analysis and warning. Moreover, the Survivor R CBRN can operate on the move. In addition to its inherent identification capabilities the system can collect samples from soil, water, and ground for later reference analysis. It allows real-time transmission of all relevant CBRN information up the chain of command as well as immediate marking of contaminated areas to enhance the survivability and mobility of ground forces.
