Jointly developed by Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles (RMMV) and Achleitner, the Survivor R offers a perfect combination of mobility, protection and payload delivering an optimal support solution for modern armed and special forces in all operating environments. The Survivor R is designed in civil appearance and can be customized by optional equipment packages according to police-specific requirements. The consequent use of COTS and MOTS components ensures short delivery times and allows cost-effective worldwide service and maintainability within the Rheinmetall and MAN service network making Survivor R a vehicle solution with low life cycle costs and highest operational availability.
Based on a 330hp (242kW) 4 x 4 truck chassis by MAN, the combined all-wheel drive expertise of MAN and Achleitner, the Survivor R is equipped with an armoured crew compartment by Rheinmetall Defence, combining proven series production and automotive components with state-of-the-art protection technology. This making it one of the most cost-effective solutions available today. The armoured steel hull can be discretely up-armoured with adaptive protection elements to counter changing threat scenarios. The gas-tight monocoque can be equipped with a CBRN ventilation system to protect the crew against nuclear, biological and chemical warfare agents.
The large and bright vehicle interior is easy to clean and offers sufficient space for up to 10 crew members including personal equipment and various command and communication equipment. An auxiliary heating and a powerful air conditioning system provide a comfortable and ergonomic operational environment throughout the whole year. The internal seating arrangement and stowage concept can be adapted and customised according to customer-specific requirements. This versatile vehicle can also be equipped with remotely operated weapon stations. A variant fitted with Rheinmetall’s Fieldranger weapon station is designed for protecting airports, for instance, as well as for operations against terrorists employing military tactics and equipment.
An armoured monocoque cab with add-on protection elements can be individually and discreetly modified to meet evolving threat situations, while a ventilation system for filtering out nuclear, biological and chemical agents is standard equipment in every Survivor R vehicle. Well-lit and ergonomically designed, the interior is spacious enough to seat up to eleven personnel with their personal equipment as well as extensive C4I and communications equipment. An engine-independent auxiliary heating and a powerful air conditioning system ensure a comfortable operating environment for the crew all year round.
