DSEI 2015

Flexible Fox [DSEI15, D2]

16 September 2015

Jankel (Stand N6-370) has launched the Rapid Reaction Vehicle (RRV), the latest addition to its Fox family of Light Tactical Vehicles (LTV) here at DSEI.

According to Jankel, the modularity of this newly developed variant creates a truly versatile vehicle that is able to carry out a range of battlefield roles and meet some of the most demanding customer requirements.

A key feature of the LTV is its ease of configuration, which enables dynamic and rapid platform re-roles, for example, additional crew, NATO pallet storage and casualty evacuation with stretcher stowage.

The RRV is based on a Toyota Land Cruiser (4x4) platform and boasts a long range, high payload and air transportability. Jankel said it is also ‘dirty fuel’ compatible, which is of considerable importance when it is deployed on overseas operations where the quality of the fuel being supplied is of major concern.

It is being marketed with a V6 petrol engine or V8 turbocharged diesel engine, coupled to a manual or automatic transmission.

The example shown at DSEI is fitted with roll-over protection and a 7.62mm machine gun. Options include a modular armour system.

Daniel Crosby, commercial director at Jankel, said: ‘‘We have been encouraged by the interest shown already, where customers are looking for an economic, robust, commercially available platform that has been enhanced to military standards. We can’t wait to present the new levels of payload and performance that this LTV has to offer.’’
