Volkswagen Amarok For Military Applications

Rheinmetall Defense took a stock Volkswagen Amarok

And made this…

A Light Multi-Purpose Vehicle for military applications.

Unveiled recently at the Eurosatory defense expo in Paris (the Geneva Motor Show of military hardware)

The options list include a reinforced suspension, advanced communications systems and an automated, motorized turret for a machine gun or grenade launcher.

You can also get it in a variety of engines ranging up to 177 horsepower mated to either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission.

CMC, see how you can get the VW Amarock into the military programme?

  1. Now this I’d recommend for Kenya military in addition to the humvees…….. It can be a great utility vehicle even for Kenya Forest Service and KWS. I have especially like that yellow one especially that bull-bar with the power winch! Imagine a double-cab Amarok, black in colour with tinted windows and with the tjm bullbars incl winch with sidesteps….matatus zitakaa kando na wewe! Hahaha!!

    Nice one!
