Design and protection
The hull and the turret of the Shareef-2 DCA02 are made in all-welded steel construction which provides a protection against firing of small arms of 12.7mm caliber maximum and shell splinters. The vehicle is divided in three compartments with the driver and commander at the front, engine to the rear of the driver and the troop compartment at the rear. The driver and the commander have three day periscopes. The central periscope of the driver can be replaced by an IR (Infrared) night vision. The commander and driver each have a windscreen to the front that is covered, when in a combat area, by an armoured shutter hinged at the top. Commander and driver have also a rear-opening circular hatch mounted on the roof of the hull. The infantryman enters and leaves the vehicle via a large door that is hinged on the right and has a firing port and a vision block. In each side of the troop compartment are two firing ports with a day periscope. There is a single door in the lower half of each side of the hull between the first and second roadwheels. There are also four hatches on the roof of the troop compartment.
Propulsion

The vehicle is motorized with a DEUTZ BF8L413FC air-cooled diesel engine and a mechanical gearbox which provide excellent performance in the tropical areas, desert and high land. The vehicle has 5 forward and 1 reverse gears, with a German-designed 5S-111GPA mechanical gear box and power assisted steering. The Shareef-2 DCA02 can run at a maximum road speed of 100 km/h with a maximum road range of 800 km. The vehicle can climb a gradient of 30° and cross a trench of 1.2m or vertical obstacle of 0.55m maximum.
