Replacing the Landrover / HMMWV

opswarfare believes that there is a very big market for army utility vehicles at the moment. A few choices remain in the mix, with Iveco's LMV, AM General's HMMWV, Landrover's Defender, and MOWAG's Eagle IV. opswarfare envisages a future vehicle, with a hybrid powerplant, a remote controlled weapons mount, run-flat tyres, and a 2 row, 3-abrest seating arrangement. More details to follow.

Below are the current products on the market

BAE Systems Panther Command and Liaison Vehicle
Based on the Iveco LMV

BAE Systems RG-32M
South African design

This is based on the AM General Humvee chassis

something a bit bigger...

ADI Bushmaster
Timoney has some input in this vehicle also. Timoney is the same company that developed the AV81 Terrex together with ST Kinetics

Krauss-Maffei Wegmann Dingo 2
Underneath the body is a Mercedes Unimog chassis

    looks like the 3-abreast seating, copied from the fiat multipla, has being used in a military vehicle. The Spider LSV from ST Kinetics utilises this seating arrangement.
