The vehicle is fitted with an independent suspension system with an approach angle of 30° and a departure angle of 40°. The vehicle can reach 110km/h (69mph) on-road.

The APC is fitted with a STANAG 4569 Level 2 ballistic protection package. The Al-Wahsh displayed at IDEX 2019 was fitted with an RCWS (Remote Controlled Weapon System) armed with a heavy machine gun.
