TITUS is the latest generation of 6×6 armoured vehicles, conceived by Nexter to answer the support and transport vehicles needs of modern armies
The ministry of defence, Czech Republic, signed a contract with Nexter, a KNDS company, for acquisition of 62 TITUS armoured vehicles, on 11 July 2019.
TITUS is the latest generation of 6×6 armoured vehicles, conceived by Nexter to answer the support and transport vehicles needs of modern armies offering high level of protection, mobility and versatility, as well as controlled ownership cost. TITUS’ mobility chain was developed in cooperation with Czech supplier Tatra Trucks. A ‘Homeland Security’ kit is available, answering more specifically to the needs of police and security forces.
Czech MoD’s order is about 3 variants of TITUS – Commanding Post (CP), Transmissions, and Artillery Fire Coordination Post.
ELDIS (CSG Group), Nexter’s partner for this Czech Republic project, carries the main contract with the MoD and will organise the licensed local production. This order consecrates a successful European industrial cooperation, combining in a balanced manner the know-how of all involved partners.
“Nexter’s teams are proud to participate in the armed forces’ modernisation of a partner of growing importance to France within NATO, and express their gratitude towards the Czech Republic for their trust,” the company said in a statement.
