The order comprises the delivery of 33 armored 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 armored driver’s cabins and armored crane cabins.

The two recovery winches and towing device at the rear enable it to recover and tow a wide range of different vehicles.
