Rheinmetall is making another important contribution to strengthening NATO's European member nations: starting in late 2026, Norway will be taking delivery of almost 300 advanced TG3 MIL 8x8 military trucks worth over €150 million.

Earmarked for the Norwegian armed forces, the package encompasses multiple vehicle variants, including hook loader trucks, special vehicles with crane and hook loader systems as well as trailers and flatracks.
