07/14/2017 Liebherr receives the order to supply armoured mobile and rescue cranes to the German Army
The order comprises the delivery of 33 armoured recovery cranes with model name G-BKF and 38 G-LTM 1090-4.2 mobile cranes. These are 90-tonne class telescopic cranes which also feature armoured driver's cabins and armoured crane cabins.
The G-BKF from Liebherr is an armoured recovery crane on a four-axle mobile crane chassis. It has excellent off-road capability and great manoeuvrability. The G-BKF can be used flexibly and economically since it is equipped both to hoist loads and also to recover vehicles. Its 20.9 meter telescopic boom enables the G-BKF to handle loads up to 20 tonnes in weight quickly and precisely. Its two recovery winches and towing device at the rear enable it to recover and tow a wide range of different vehicles.
The G-LTM 1090-4.2 ordered by the German Army is a four-axle mobile crane derived from the standard LTM 1090-4.2 version with an armoured driver's cabin and an armoured crane cabin. It has a 35.7 metre telescopic boom and a recovery winch at the rear.
