Romanian Military Vehicle Systems (RMVS) will roll out in 2020 the first of the 400 8×8 Agilis armored carriers that will equip the Romanian army, the company said in a release on Thursday.

Romarm National Company S.A. – through its subsidiary Automechanical Plant Moreni S.A. holds 50 pct of the stake of the new company based in Moreni (Dambovita County), and Germany’s Rheinmetall holds the other half.
The 8×8 Agilis armored carrier, based on a Romanian-German research solution, is the first product built at Moreni in partnership with Rheinmetall. The Agilis project provides for the manufacturing of 400 amphibious armored personnel carriers for the National Defence Ministry.
The full development and serial production of the new Romanian Agilis in six versions will comply with the requirements set forth by the Ministry of National Defence.
To this end, the development and fitting out of the Moreni-based production capacities are running this year. A first step will be the training, at Rheinmetall’s production locations in Germany, of the Romanian experts who are to conceive together with German experts the development and serial production process.
