Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles GmbH (RRMV) of Munich entered into an agreement with Timoney Technology Ltd. of Gibbstown, Ireland, to cooperate in the military logistic and tactical vehicle sector.
Under a license agreement, Timoney Technology will develop and produce independent suspension systems and power trains for all new RMMV vehicles
equipped with all-wheel drive and independent suspension, including systems with two, three or four axles. Based on the Timoney power train technology in Rheinmetall’s Wisent armored transport vehicle, the result will be a new, high-mobility family of vehicles systematically designed to meet the needs of the military.

The new Wisent, an 8x8 all-wheel drive armored vehicle, is a first example of fruitful cooperation between the two companies. During intensive qualification trials conducted under the Bundeswehr’s GFF 4 procurement program, the vehicle handled superbly and, thanks to its high-performance chassis, had no problem coping with even the most challenging off-road conditions.
