Rheinmetall Defence won a EUR135 million order for survivability upgrades of 6×6 Fuchs armoured fielded by the German Army.

Under the contract from the BAAINBw, Rheinmetall Defence will modernize ninety vehicles.

Delivery of the vehicles is slated to start in 2017 and end in 2020.

In recent years Rheinmetall Defence has already upgraded 177 Fuchs vehicles to the latest 1A8 standard.

Modifications include structural alteration of the hull; new seats and suspended seating; reinforcement of the wheel housings, doors and window mountings; and additional storage bins and reinforcement of the vehicle exterior.
