Founded by rally driver Gerard Rond, Defenture kicked-off with research & development in 2013. Serial production of its high-end light tactical vehicle started in 2017 for the Dutch SOF. The official transfer of the complete serie of 75 ATTV’s took place in July 2020. The Dutch SF called the ATTV (air transportable tactical vehicle) ‘VECTOR’. VECTOR stands for Versatile Expeditionary Commando Tactical Off Road. Nowadays Defenture has supplied various configurations to several (NATO) countries.
Only a month after the official transfer of the ATTV’s, Defenture signed a new contract with the Dutch MoD for delivering +/- 300 Military Diesel Quads (MDQ), the Scorpion. The Scorpion initially intended for the action of Dutch special operation forces in mission areas. The Ministry of Defence has since expanded the user group. The 11 Airmobile Brigade, the Dutch SF forces (KCT) and the Dutch Marine Corps (KMARNS) will also receive the Scorpion. Nex to that, there is strong and rising interest from other (NATO countries)
