Military Vehicles [Swiss/Switzerland]: MOWAG Piranha 3C APC/IFV (Die Schweizer Armee)
The MOWAG Piranha is a family of armoured fighting vehicles designed by the
Swiss MOWAG, which since April 2010 has changed name to General Dynamics
European Land Systems - Mowag GmbH.
The MOWAG Piranha is available in 4x4, 6x6, 8x8, and 10x10 wheel versions.
There are several variants within these versions, giving different degrees
of armour protection and several kinds of turrets, for use in a variety of
roles. Piranha derivatives have been assigned roles as troop transports,
command vehicles, fire support vehicles, tank trainers, and police
Four generations of vehicles have been produced, manufactured by MOWAG or
under license by other companies, and variants are in service with military
forces throughout the world. Piranha derivatives have been manufactured
under license by General Dynamics (Canada), BAE Systems Land Systems (UK),
Komatsu (Japan), Cardoen and FAMAE (Chile), and in the USA. The 8x8 US Army
Stryker vehicle is derived from the Canadian LAV III which in turn is based
on the Piranha, as is the LAV-25 family in service with the USMC. The
Australian Defence Force also has its own modified version of the Piranha I
8x8 known as the ASLAV (Australian Light Armoured Vehicle). The ASLAV is
operated by two cavalry regiments (the 2nd Cavalry Regiment and 2nd/14th
Light Horse Regiment) and is used in the armoured reconnaissance and
armoured personnel carrier roles. Some variants, like the United States
Marine Corps's Light Armored Vehicle-25 (LAV-25) and its derivatives, are
equipped with propellers for amphibious use, though their abilities are
limited to sheltered waters.

The Light Armoured Tactical Vehicle
The requirement for LTAVs was identified in order to fill a capability gap
that existed between soft skinned vehicles and Armoured Personnel Carriers
(APCs). The need to deploy small groups in command, escort and specialist
tasks when threat levels are elevated renders soft skinned vehicles
inadequate. Similarly, the size and profile of APCs make them inappropriate
for use in certain situations, such as built up areas with narrow streets.
Therefore the need for a robust, flexible, multi-role vehicle to complement
the existing APC fleet was recognised.
Peace Support Operations are becoming increasingly complex and present many
and varied threats to troops. Force protection was one of the primary
considerations in the procurement of the vehicles. The RG32M provides
substantial levels of protection from small arms fire, shell fragments,
Roadside bombs and landmines, thereby enhancing the protection of our
personnel. The vehicle combines speed with tactical versatility. It is
lighter than an APC and is therefore more maneuverable and easier to
transport by air.
Training on the LTAV will commence shortly with an initial priority of
equipping Ireland's commitment to the EU Nordic Battlegroup of 2011. The
Defence Forces will commit 160 personnel to the Battlegroup, which will
remain on standby for short-notice deployments around the world from
January to July 2011. The Irish contribution comprises an Intelligence
Surveillance and Target Acquisition (ISTAR) company and headquarters
Four different variants of the vehicle have been purchased: A Standard
variant which incorporates a protected weapons station; An Intelligence
Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) variant fitted with specialist
surveillance equipment; A Surveillance and Target Acquisition (STA) variant
which incorporates enhanced Fire Control systems and a Communications
Information and Signals (CIS) variant which is fitted with advanced

Extreme AMPHIBIOUS Russian offroad vehicle: Aton-Impulse VIKING-2992
4x4xAMPHIBIOUS, VIKING combines the best of extreme off-road with internal
floatation and water-jet powered amphibious capability.
The ATON IMPULSE VIKING-2992 is a unique special purpose vehicle, ideal for
heavy industry, exploration, arctic use, flood-relief, NGOs, rescue and
emergency services. VIKING is the only amphibious off-road vehicle in the
world to have passed through certification to meet UN/ECE regulations for
unrestricted ON-ROAD USE.
VIKING's world-leading amphibious capabilities are based around its
purpose-designed flotation construction, centrally mounted engine and
powerful water-jet propulsion enable it to ford open water at speeds of up
to 15 km/h. The vehicle's wheels may be optionally engaged while in
amphibious mode, providing unique ability to cope with shallow water and to
transit the challenging littoral zone, where other vehicles commonly become
stuck in soft mud.
Off-road, VIKING is overwhelmingly superior to comparable amphibians, with
cross-country ability akin to tracked vehicles. High maneuverability,
turn-over resistance and endurance provide safety and comfort in remote or
With a curb weight of only 1.46 tonnes, riding on giant 1300x600x533 tires,
VIKING's exceptionally low ground pressure enables it to "float" on soft
snow surfaces and avoids damage to sensitive environments. VIKING has
independent pneumatic front and rear wheel suspension with adjustable
clearance and a tire air-pressure adjustment system operable from the cab
while driving the vehicle.
VIKING's is designed for security and endurance rather than high speed,
which in any case is hazardous on rough terrain. Top speed on-road is 50
mph at 16.8 mpg; off-road at 11.8 mpg, currently limited by the tires (cost
$700 each) speed rating. ATON IMPULSE is bringing out new, higher-speed
rated, custom tires, as well as bullet proof tires. More powerful engine
models will be fitted in future models.
The VIKING-2992 will for the first time be available for international
purchase in late 2012.
