Building on the mobility, protection and payload of the class-leading EAGLE 4x4 light tactical vehicle, General Dynamics European Land Systems is proud to present the new EAGLE 6x6 light tactical vehicle at the EUROSATORY 2012 show.

To meet the growing demand for higher levels of survivability, mobility and capacity in more-affordable light tactical vehicles, General Dynamics European Land Systems combined the proven DURO 6x6 chassis, driveline and suspension with the EAGLE 4x4 hull to create the EAGLE 6x6 light tactical vehicle.

The uniquely designed axle and mechanical roll-stabilizer system provides superior driving safety at high speeds and superior traction for negotiating difficult off-road conditions. The General Dynamics-designed transfer case, differentials and wheel ends ensure constant drive to all wheels under all conditions. The optional rear-axle steering further increases the tactical mobility of the EAGLE 6x6.

     
The EAGLE 4x4 and the EAGLE 6x6 provide a true family of vehicles with the flexibility to accommodate 2 to 11 soldiers in roles including reconnaissance, command and control, APC, ambulance, NBC detection, mortar carrier, recovery and logistics transport over the 8.5 tons to 15 tons gross vehicle weight range. The new EAGLE 6x6 offers payloads of up to 6,000 kg and protected volumes of up to 16 cubic meters.

The family of vehicles concept provides significant savings in operator and maintenance training and maximizes commonality in tools and spare parts. Payload growth is designed into the platform and an optional integrated generator provides significant electrical growth to meet future electrical needs.

The EAGLE family of vehicles provides customers with a cost-effective balance of payload, protection and performance through the use of proven, off the shelf systems while providing growth and flexibility to meet future operational needs and threats.
