The SX is a family of high-mobility off-road tactical trucks now manufactured by Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles GmbH (RMMV). The SX range has its design origins in the MAN KAT1 (occasionally presented MAN Cat 1) range of trucks, and for a brief period was marketed as the S2000 range of trucks. MAN (now RMMV) claimed it was the most mobile and reliable truck on earth.
There are 8x8, 6x6, and 4x4 variants, although currently only 6x6 and 8x8 variants are being marketed. All are air-transportable by C-130 Hercules in cargo configuration, with limited preparation in some instances. A 10x10 demonstrator was also built, with a 1000 hp engine, but this did not enter production.
An 8x8 heavy recovery version has also been built; the UK MoD ordering 288.
