01 June 21. DELIVERY OF the fleet of over 2000 new Scania trucks for the Royal Netherlands Armed Forces began during 2020 as part of the DVOW programme, with ProTEK® again being selected as the seat of choice. This time certified Roll Over Protection Systems (ROPS) have been installed, offering greatly improved occupant safety for troops whilst in transit.
Each occupant cell features NATO standard ergonomic seats, with four-point harness seat belts to Def Stan 25-9 and secure weapon holders, with both roll over and tree strike protection.
