BAE Sys­tems de­buts RG35 multi-role fight­ing ve­hi­cle


BAE Sys­tems launched the lat­est 6x6 vari­ant of the RG35 fam­ily of ve­hi­cles – the RG35 multi-pur­pose blast pro­tected fight­ing ve­hi­cle – at the 2012 Africa Aero­space and De­fence (AAD) ex­hi­bi­tion.

The RG35 6x6 has an 8.5-tonne pay­load, a 12-cu­bic me­tre vol­ume un­der ar­mor, can seat up to 14 crew mem­bers, and carry light and medium re­mote con­trolled weapon sta­tions. Like the 4x4 vari­ant, the lat­est 6x6 vari­ant in­cludes in­de­pen­dent sus­pen­sion and a side mounted power-pack that can be re­placed in less than one hour.

The RG35 fam­ily of ve­hi­cles can be de­ployed in many dif­fer­ent roles and of­fers a choice of vari­ants and con­fig­u­ra­tions while main­tain­ing 80 per cent ve­hi­cle com­mon­al­ity. RG35 com­bines the high lev­els of sur­viv­abil­ity of the RG31 mine pro­tected ve­hi­cle with the tac­ti­cal ca­pa­bil­ity of an in­fantry fight­ing ve­hi­cle.
