“The new RG35 vehicle is a direct response to lessons learned from operations in Iraq and Afghanistan – soldiers need an effective level of protection without sacrificing mobility, payload and firepower,” said Chris Chambers, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems Tactical Wheeled Vehicles. “We’ve responded to the needs of soldiers and are now able to tailor the vehicle’s capability to specific requirements because of the design’s adaptability.”

The vehicle is available in 4x4 and 6x6 configurations. The RG35 4x4 is a mine protected, multi-mission tactical wheeled vehicle that can easily be modified in a number of ways to transport cargo, conduct routine patrols or be outfitted for surveillance missions. The 6x6 version combines tactical mobility with a high level of survivability and high capacity volume under armour, offering a new class cross-over combat vehicle.

“The RG35 family of vehicles is a modern and dependable tactical wheeled vehicle family truly built for multiple mission types. No matter where or what the mission, getting troops home safely is what drives us when developing our vehicles,” said Johan Steyn, managing director of BAE Systems’ Land Systems South Africa. “We’ve integrated four decades of expertise and experience into this family of vehicles.”

The RG35 can be equipped with light and medium turrets, or with indirect fire weapons. The RG35 4x4 variant, on display at Eurosatory, will feature the light-weight Self Defence Remotely Operated Weapon (SD-ROW), which enables forces to engage hostile targets without exposing operators to harm during day and night.
