SOV

Modular vehicle system for special and specialized forces

The SOV is an air-transportable utility vehicle specially designed for the demanding requirements of special forces. It combines unusual mobility and off-road performance with long operation range and a payload not formerly seen in this vehicle class.  The SOV provides protection from ballistic threats and has a mine-protected undercarriage. The modular design of the SOV allows for various mission-specific vehicle variants. The cross-functional chassis permits options such as a protected transport vehicle with remote-controlled weapon station, a pickup or a vehicle with high-protection cabin.

Air transportability

The innovative folding roll bar shortens the preparation time for loading into a CH-53 transport helicopter to less than three minutes. Weapons remain mounted, allowing combat readiness immediately after unloading. Easily accessible external loading eyelets.
