Vehicle
The hull of the WMZ551A is made in all-welded steel which provides a protection for the crew against firing of small arms and shell splinters. The driver is seated at the front left and is provided with a single hatch cover above his position as well as periscopes and vision devices to provide observation over the frontal arc. The vehicle commander is seated to the right of the driver and has a raised cupola with a single-piece hatch. The WMZ551A uses a 6x6 chassis and is powered by a DEUTZ BF8L413FC air-cooled diesel engine. A single door is available at the rear of the hull. The WMZ551A is fully amphibious and is propelled in the water by two shrouded propellers, which are mounted one either side at the rear and that are run from a power take-off. These give a maximum water speed of 8 km/h.
