Description
The Dragoon wheeled armoured vehicle personnel carrier was produced by Arrowpointe Corporation (now General Dynamics Land Division) during the 1980s. It was based on the automotive components of the US Army's M113 APC's and 5 ton trucks. It resembled a larger V-150 Commando. The latest design of Dragoon has been purchased by the US military and several foreign governments and is available in 10 different variants. One- and two-man turrets are available that have been easily adapted to a variety of other armoured vehicles. The first production vehicles were completed for the US Army and Navy in 1983. Since then, Venezuela, Thailand and the US Navy have placed orders for Dragoon armoured vehicles, which have subsequently been delivered. Dragoon borrows in from the M113A2 its starter, its periscopes, its drain pumps, its control knobs and its components electric and hydraulic. The case of Dragoon is an entirely welded steel construction, ensuring the crew a protection against the individual weapons of 5,56 and 7,62 mm and against the glares of shell.
