Gen­eral Dy­nam­ics Euro­pean Land Sys­tems presents the new EA­GLE 6x6

SP's MAI - - SHOW REPORT -

Gen­eral Dy­nam­ics Euro­pean Land Sys­tems pre­sented for the first time the new­est mem­ber of the EA­GLE fam­ily of ve­hi­cles, the EA­GLE 6x6 light tac­ti­cal ve­hi­cle.

To meet the grow­ing de­mand for higher lev­els of sur­viv­abil­ity, mo­bil­ity and ca­pac­ity in more-af­ford­able light tac­ti­cal ve­hi­cles, Gen­eral Dy­nam­ics Euro­pean Land Sys­tems com­bined the proven DURO 6x6 chas­sis, driv­e­line and sus­pen­sion with the EA­GLE 4x4 hull to cre­ate the EA­GLE 6x6 light tac­ti­cal ve­hi­cle.

The uniquely de­signed axle and me­chan­i­cal roll-sta­biliser sys­tem pro­vides su­pe­rior driv­ing safety at high speeds and su­pe­rior trac­tion for ne­go­ti­at­ing dif­fi­cult off-road con­di­tions. The Gen­eral Dy­nam­ics-de­signed trans­fer case, dif­fer­en­tials and wheel ends en­sure con­stant drive to all wheels un­der all con­di­tions. The op­tional rear-axle steer­ing fur­ther in­creases the tac­ti­cal mo­bil­ity of the EA­GLE 6x6.

The EA­GLE 4x4 and the EA­GLE 6x6 pro­vide a true fam­ily of ve­hi­cles with the flex­i­bil­ity to ac­com­mo­date two to 11 sol­diers in roles in­clud­ing re­con­nais­sance, com­mand and con­trol, APC, am­bu­lance, NBC de­tec­tion, mor­tar car­rier, re­cov­ery and lo­gis­tics trans­port over the 8.5 tonnes to 15 tonnes gross ve­hi­cle weight range. The new EA­GLE 6x6 of­fers pay­loads of up to 6,000 kg and pro­tected vol­umes of up to 16 cu­bic me­tres.
