The WOLF FSV is designed to provide support to other types of military units and at the same time it can independantly counter ground targets, aircrafts and ships. The combination of excellent performance of the Cockerill CT-CV 105 mm turret system with superior mobility and reliability of the Patria AMV which is proven in combat provide an effective weapon against a broad spectrum of threats on the moderne battlefield.

Wolf FSV ("Wilk" in Polish) is based on Patria AMV 8x8 multi-role armoured vehicle produced by the Polish company WZM S.A. The WZM version features major changes from the original Patria AMV, such as the ability to be air-transported by military transport aircraft C-130 Hercules and can cross water obstacles.

The Belgian Cockerill 105mm high pressure gun provides commanders with a wide choice of ammunition to suit the tactical situation; it fires all NATO-standard 105mm types and the Falarick 105 GLATGM. Secundary armament includes 7.62 mm coaxial or 12.7 mm pintle-mounted machine-gun.

Elevating to +42° this weapon delivers exceptional engagement capability in complex terrain, an indirect-fire HE capability to 10km range, and the GLATGM permits heavy armour to be defeated at ranges in excess of 5 km. The main gun is employed using a high performance, digital, fully-stabilised, day/night weapon control system. Turret weight is kept low through the use of a bustle-mounted autoloader, which permits a two-person crew.

The CT-CV turret is fully stabilized with effectively hitting moving targets while on the move. The turret is also equipped with latest generation day-night observation system and multi target designation process (Hunter-Killer capability). The CT-CV provides also a crew protection up to Level 4 (STANAG 4569) with add-on armour and protection against NBC contamination.
