The vehicles were developed, tested and manufactured on a tight, 14-month timeline in close cooperation between General Dynamics European Land Systems-Mowag, General Dynamics European Land Systems-Germany and other German companies following an October 2009 contract award.

The German army selected the EAGLE IV in 2008 for the “GFF Klasse 2” public procurement program for protected Command and Function vehicles following 2 years of intensive evaluation. As a result of its high protection level, agility and tactical mobility as well as its outstanding reliability and availability, the EAGLE IV is the ideal vehicle for the entire mission spectrum of this class of vehicles.

The EAGLE BAT accommodates an emergency doctor, rescue assistant and a driver/paramedic and allows patient transport and emergency treatment while protecting occupants from ballistic threats, mines and improvised explosive devices. As part of orders for 473 EAGLE GFF2 vehicles, General Dynamics European Land Systems entered a contract with the BWB for the delivery of 20 protected EAGLE BAT (Protected Ambulance) in October 2009. These vehicles will replace existing unprotected vehicles of the Bundeswehr, thus considerably increasing the security of German soldiers on missions abroad. BWB has ordered 473 EAGLE IV vehicles in all.
