The Springbuck derives its name from the iconic African antelope, known for its toughness and sure-footed dexterity and has been designed around the ergonomics of the driver and crew -specifically for the African market. This makes it ideal for a broad spectrum of security applications.

This family of vehicles is simplistic in design, easy to operate by users, affordable (purchasing costs and life cycle costs) and can be produced in different variants (applications). The concept in design is modular and interior fits can easily be changed.

Depending on user's requirements, the Springbuck is available as a Standard (SD) version. Heavy Duty (HD) version and Xtra Duty (XD) version. The performance, payload and protection increases with each model. The Springbuck family of vehicles (Springbuck SD, HD and XD) is ideal for South Africa and the African Continent.

The 4x4 Springbuck XD is motorized with a powerful Cummins 6 cylinder diesel turbo charged and intercooled engine. It can carry a driver and nine military personnel. With ballistic protection upgradeable to STANAG Level 3, the all-steel armoured V-shaped hull is certified against STANAG Level 4a under any wheel and 3b under the hull.


The standard configuration can be easily adapted to suit various applications including an ambulance, cash-in-transit, riot control or tactical patrol vehicle and with the addition of turret-mounted weaponry, the vehicle can also be effectively used in combat.
