The FOX RRV-x (Rapid Reaction Vehicle) is a 4x4 light tactical vehicle designed and manufactured by the British Company Jankel. The RRV-x is based on a 4x4 Toyota Hilux chassis militarised and upgraded to provide each vehicle with optimised performance to meet the missions' requirements.
The Fox RRV-x boasts long range, high payload and air-transportability. Ease of re-configuration enables dynamic and rapid platform re-roles; for instance additional crew, NATO pallet storage and casualty evacuation (stretcher storage). The proprietary enhancements retain the proven base platform reliability, certification and global supportability. Able to operate in extreme environments the Fox RRV is also ‘dirty fuel’ compatible, with the option to add a modular armour system providing full blast and ballistic protection.
The Fox Rapid Reaction Vehicle has been designed with internal CH-47 air transportability and increased off-road agility to push the boundaries of payload, mobility and performance. The RRV is also equipped with fast action retractable weapon mounts. So that the RRV-x can be equiped depending on the mission’s requirements with a 7.62mm machine gun or a 12.7mm heavy machine gun or a 40mm automatic grenade launcher on the top of the vehicle.
