Belgium special operations forces re-learn the possibilities of a militarised commercial vehicle and secure 108 Fox Rapid Response Vehicles (RRVs)

Belgium Defense Minister Steven Vandeput announced the order proclaiming the new vehicles "allow the Belgian army to enter the 21st century". The Fox fleet brings together Toyota's expertise in automotive technology and reliability, with Jankel's military protection and upgraded terrain performance.
The Fox is a very powerful vehicle. We were looking for this; a vehicle which is able to protect those who use itDefense Minister Vandeput
