EODH Protection Hoplite

4x4 High-Mobility Tactical Vehicle (HMTV) [ 2023 ]

The EODH Hoplite is a new-generation tactical-level high mobility vehicle from Greece unveiled at Eurosatory 2022.

The Hoplite is a new High-Mobility Tactical Vehicle (HMTV) from EODH of Greece. The design stands in a crowded field of such battlefield solutions but intends to make a name for itself on the global stage through enhanced survivability features and versatility in design. The Hoplite was on display at Eurosatory 2022 and hopes to sell the Hellenic Army on its qualities - as well as NATO observers across Europe.

As designed, the truck has an overall length of 6.1 meters, a beam of 2.4 meters, and a height of 2.6 meters. Gross weight is 12,000 kilograms. Internally, the Hoplite is powered by a 5.7L turbo-diesel unit of 300 horsepower mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission system. The powerpack allows for speeds of up to 120 kmh with a range out to 700 kilometers. The vehicle can traverse grades of 60%, side slopes of 35%, and ford up to 1 meter of water.

The hull sits atop a heavy-duty, blast-deflecting frame in 4x4 wheeled configuration designed for both onroad and offroad abuse. The passenger cabin is protected from all sides from small arms fire and artillery spray while additional attention is paid to under-vehicle detonations from mines and Improvised Explisive Devices (IEDs). The blast frame is independent of the passenger cabin proper, further enhancing survivability of occupants, and a blast plate is seated along the floor of the cabin to complete this protection scheme. Access to internals of the vehicle is possible by a unique hull-tilting feature allowing for the servicing of buried components under the compartment. Rounding out this three-layered survivability arrangement are "suspended" mine blast seats for each of the crew / occupants.

On the whole, the truck has a conventional arrangement with a front-mounted engine compartment, side-by-side seating, a flat roof line, and well-spaced roadwheels. The roadwheels are of large dimension allowing for the needed cross-country travel and the chassis sits relatively high to provide for excellent ground clearance when going offroad or through water sources.

In its general form, the Hoplite is seen with five total hinged access doors (two per hull side, one at the rear) for operator and occupant entry-exit with seating for up to eight total personnel within. Variants reduce the number of openings to two, three, or four depending on mark / compartment design. A spare road wheel is installed externally over the rear-left of the hull which forces the entry-exit door to be offset to the right side.

Modularity is at the heart of the Hoplite as the chassis (drivetrain, engine, and frame) make up a common framework from which the vehicle can be formed around. The engine, transmission system, and cooling system are all assembled and tested as a single complete solution which means owners can overhaul / repair / replace entire vehicles in short order if battle-damaged or malfunctioning.

Currently available (2022) hull options include the HMTV-10 STANDARD housing, the HMTV-10 DOUBLE CABIN featuring a cut-down rear section, the HMTV-10 AMBULANCE with reduced window panels and doors, and the HMTV-10 SINGLE CABIN sporting a further cut-down rear section with just the driving cabin being sheltered.©MilitaryFactory.com
