FENNEK Command and Control Vehicle
The command and control vehicle variant, which is known within the Dutch Army as “Allgemeine Dienste” (AD), can be employed universally. Instead of the monitoring and reconnaissance equipment, it features equipment storage space for use in a variety of missions. The engineers of the German and Dutch Armies operated the first vehicles of this configuration beginning in 2005.
The FENNEK family
The FENNEK vehicle family is the answer to various requirement profiles and has proven its worth time after time with over 600 combat-ready vehicles in the German and Dutch Army – and also currently, being deployed in Afghanistan. The three-man crew - driver, commander and radio operator/observer - can operate autonomously for up to five days. Equipment, operating materials, drinking water and food are carried in the vehicle. Air transportable in the C130, the FENNEK can be moved quickly and easily, even to distant areas of deployment.
Mobility With a total gross weight of up to 12 tons the FENNEK copes easily with gradients of over 60% and cross slopes greater than 35%. It has a turning radius of 13 meters and a water fording capability of up to one meter. An automatic tire pressure control system allows the vehicle to adapt perfectly to the terrain conditions. Its powerful engine is complemented by a selectable all-wheel-drive, a fully automatic transmission and a transfer case. The H-drive train allow the low height and low center of gravity of the vehicle, which in turn guarantee the high mobility in heavy terrain, whilst the use of state of the art engine technology enables a range of almost 1 000 kilometers.
