General Dynamics Land Systems–UK showcases adaptable Foxhound vehicle at DSEI 2019
General Dynamics Land Systems–UK is showcasing its highly-adaptable Foxhound 4×4 vehicle at Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) 2019.
Since 2012, 400 Foxhound vehicles have been in-service with the British Army and have been deployed worldwide, including in Afghanistan and Iraq, offering exceptional mobility, ride and blast protection. Designed and built in the UK, Foxhound integrates highly survivable V-shaped hull technology and utilises a dismountable crew pod design for different roles, including the existing Foxhound Troop Carrier, a Weapons Mount Installation Kit (WMIK)-style Reconnaissance variant, a flat-bed Utility load carrier, and a Command and Control (C2) variant. The latest variant of the British Army Foxhound fleet enables the vehicle to undertake a Public Order role.
Carew Wilks, vice president and general manager of General Dynamics Land Systems–UK, said:
“Foxhound is the protected mobility vehicle of choice for British Army light infantry and specialist troops on operations worldwide. Throughout its service, Foxhound has delivered high-levels of operationally-proven protection, reliability and adaptability, and most importantly extremely high-levels of availability. The British Army knows it can trust Foxhound and the latest Public Order variant shows its adaptability to meet a wide variety of requirements for today’s modern Army.”
