New PIRANHA 5 - Unveiling of the latest member of the PIRANHA Family
The launch of the latest member of the PIRANHA family of armoured wheeled vehicles, PIRANHA 5, will be celebrated during the official unveiling ceremony on Tuesday, June 15th, 2010. This advanced new vehicle will raise the benchmark in the areas of survivability, mobility and firepower, marking unprecedented progress in the development of armoured wheeled vehicles.
Presentation and unveil ceremony of the vehicle on Tuesday, June 15th (12:45 hours).

New EAGLE
To meet the increasing demand in protection and payload, General Dynamics European Land Systems has developed the new EAGLE vehicle. Due to its higher payload capacity, it can either carry more equipment or heavier protection solutions, depending on the customer's requirements. The vehicle will be shown with the LEMUR Remote Control Weapon Station, armed with a .50 cal. machine gun, type GAU 19/A, as well as with the RUAG adaptive, very lightweight SidePRO-LASSO RPG mitigation system. This highly mobile vehicle, with a crew of 4 - 5 soldiers, offers outstanding protection against ballistic, mine and improvised explosive device (IED) threats. Interchangeable automotive parts and components with DURO armoured or soft-skinned vehicles provide a cost-effective logistics commonality.
Further details will be released on a press conference on Monday, June 14th (14:00 hours).
ASCOD OWS - Multiple mission roles with excellent mobility, protection and combat ability

Based on the IFV version, the ASCOD OWS is the lightest variant of the ASCOD family, designed to mount lighter 20-30 mm commercial Remote Weapon Stations (RWS). In this case, the display vehicle will be fitted with an ELBIT UT-30 station. The ASCOD OWS is an optimal choice for multiple mission roles offering an excellent combination of mobility, protection and combat ability. The ASCOD, designed and produced by General Dynamics European Land Systems-SBS and General Dynamics European Land Systems-Steyr, is in service with the Spanish and Austrian armies and recently has been selected by the UK FRES SV program.

REBS on MAN protected truck - Mobility makes the difference
Mobility and flexibility are essential to survival in today's combat operations. The REBS (Rapidly Emplaced Bridge System), developed by General Dynamics European Land Systems-Germany, delivers both. REBS provides tactical bridging capability for MLC50 wheeled and tracked vehicles for unprepared gaps up to 13 m; it has proven its superior performance and reliability in theatre already. At EUROSATORY, the REBS will be presented on a MAN SX45 protected truck.
 
PIRANHA 3 - Wheeled Armoured Infantry Fighting Vehicle
As the most widely sold and used vehicle worldwide in its category, the battle-proven PIRANHA 3 vehicle has been re-engineered to improve protection, payload and growth potential. Equipped with the OTO MELARA HITFIST 30 mm OWS, the vehicle will be displayed in an Infantry Fighting Configuration, demonstrating the merits of an OWS and the relevant space savings in the crew compartment. The complete system will be exhibited with an adhesive digital pattern camouflage.
 
PANDUR 6x6 - Wheeled Armoured Command Post Vehicle
The PANDUR family of wheeled armored vehicles in 6x6 and 8x8 configurations is serving customers around the world as a common platform for various mission roles. The PANDUR on display will be equipped with the ELBIT stabilized overhead remote controlled weapon station .50 cal.
