Description: The Armored Multi Purpose Vehicle (AMPV) is a 4x4 vehicle family in the 5 to 9 ton weight class developed by KMW and Rheinmetall to meet the German Army/Bundeswehr requirements for protected vehicles, known as GFF program. AMPV will offer protection against ballistic threats using add-on armor modules, Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), and landmines. The first prototype is expected to roll-off in 2009 and serial deliveries are planned for 2011 onwards.

Two versions of the vehicle will be developed: AMPV-1 lighter protected vehicle intended for liaison duties and AMPV-2 heavier protected vehicle with greater payload capacity. The patrol version of both vehicles will be provided with an unprotected floor in the rear section. A version airlifted by CH-53 helicopter may be developed in the basis of AMPV-1. The power train for the AMPVs will be a 3.2-liter diesel engine developing around 200 kW. These vehicles will feature outstanding mobility, modularity and enhanced protection technology.
