Rheinmetall Landsysteme (RLS) will be responsible for adapting the vehicle to the needs of the Bundeswehr, as well as the integration of application-specific assemblies and weapon stations. The agreement also lays the groundwork for possible marketing of the vehicle abroad by Rheinmetall.
The new RLS vehicle will be marketed under the name CARACAL after the Afro-Asian cat; also known as the desert lynx.
The CARACAL is a highly mobile all-terrain four-wheel drive vehicle.
It offers a high degree of modular ballistic protection as well as advanced anti-mine features. Powered by a state-of-the-art diesel engine, the vehicle features high-performance single wheel suspension.
