Wheeled APC Vehicles.

Eagle V GDELS.

This next-generation EAGLE retains the key features of the existing in-service EAGLE that has made it the preferred light tactical vehicle of Europe’s most demanding customers. These features include low signature and mass, high reliability in all environments and outstanding off-road.

Description

Today’s combat operations demand higher levels of survivability and capacity then previously provided by light tactical vehicles. Armies had to use overweight vehicles in the 12-20,000 kg weight class, resulting in significant compromises in mobility and tactical flexibility. General Dynamics European Land Systems is leading the response to new requirements for a lighter weight tactical vehicle with increased protection and capacity and lower logistical costs with the launch of the next-generation EAGLE at the EUROSATORY 2010, the EAGLE V. This next-generation EAGLE retains the key features of the existing in-service EAGLE that has made it the preferred light tactical vehicle of Europe’s most demanding customers. These features include low signature and mass, high reliability in all environments and outstanding off-road.

EAGLE V variants:

  • The EAGLE 5 can be provided in a utility variant capable of carrying NATO pallets or a system of standardised modules that allow the vehicle to be quickly adapted at unit level to fulfil a range of battlefield logistic roles.fulfill

Technical Data

  • Armament

    The Eagle V can be fitted with a remote controlled weapon station armed with weapons up to 12,7 mm in calibre.

  • Design and protection

    The EAGLE V sets the standard for protected wheeled vehicles in the weight class of up to 10 t. The EAGLE V has a length of 5.40 m, a height of 2.38 m, a width of 2.2 m, and it accommodates up to 5 persons. The EAGLE 5 sets a new survivability standard for the light tactical vehicle class and provides proven mine, improvised explosive device (IED) and ballistic protection previously only provided by vehicles up to twice its weight. The survivability systems of the new EAGLE 5 are modular and completely integrated with the new high survivability cabin. These kits allow the tactical commander to adapt the vehicle to new threats in theatre, thus securing the utility of the EAGLE 5 across the complete spectrum of combat operations. The new EAGLE is being launched with validated survivability kits meeting a range of threats. It includes a system developed specifically to cope with the most aggressive IEDs that this class of vehicle commonly faces in today’s hostile environments. The vehicle will be shown with the RUAG LASSO RPG mitigation system integrated to demonstrate one of the many survivability enhancement kits that General Dynamics European Land Systems and its partners have developed 2 for the vehicle. In addition to these modular systems, substantial advances have been made in crew ergonomics, energy absorbing seating and occupant-restraint systems that will further improve the survivability of the new EAGLE 5 when facing the threats of today and tomorrow.

  • Mobility

    The Eagle 5 uses a 4x4 chassis and engine Cummins ISB 6.7 E3 245 Common Rail coupled to an Allison transmission 2500 SP 5-Speed automatic. The engine is mounted at the front of the vehicle. The 245 HP Cummins turbocharged diesel engine, in connection with an Allison 5-speed automatic transmission, the remarkable De Dion axle system with the patented roll stabilizer, the tire pressure control system and the permanent all-wheel drive give the EAGLE V superior on-road and off-road mobility. The Eagle 5 can run at a maximum speed of 110 km/h and a maximum range of 700 km.

  • Combat Equipment

    The EAGLE 5 retains its capability to be air transportable via helicopters such as the CH-47 Chinook. The EAGLE 5 addresses these requirements and provides over 3,000 kg payload, an internal protected volume of more than 6 m3 and a flexible rear load space that ensures the vehicle can meet today’s demands while providing growth and flexibility for tomorrow. The EAGLE 5 has a flexible internal seating arrangement that can accommodate four, five or six crew while retaining space for a comprehensive communications and electronic architecture system inside the vehicle.
