Following two years of intensive market evaluation and field trials with a demonstrator vehicle, the German Ministry of Defense ordered 280 Eurocargo military medium multipurpose 4×4 trucks from Iveco Defense Vehicles (DV). The order was made by German BwFuhrpark Service GmbH on behalf of the German Army will be delivered in 2018. Over the last decade, Iveco DV has delivered nearly 1,000 vehicles to the German Army. Recent contract awards with the Bundeswehr also include 133 armored Trakker-8×8 trucks.

The MLL 150 E 28 WS vehicles to be delivered under the current order will be supplied with an unprotected long-distance-driver cab with a highly comfortable new seating arrangement, flexible storage for radio systems and soldier equipment, off-road single tyres, a roof hatch, a NATO-blackout-light, trailer version, a spare wheel carrier and an innovative multipurpose swap-body-frame to support multi-mission-operations outside Germany. All vehicles will be fully Euro 6 emission compliant, including full single-fuel-operation-capability and offer a best-in-class payload.
