General Dynamics Land Systems–UK will showcase its range of solutions for military vehicle programmes at the 17th annual International Armoured Vehicles (IAV) Conference at Twickenham Stadium, London, 24-25 January 2017.



At the conference, General Dynamics Land Systems–UK will demonstrate its military capability and innovation with the PIRANHA 5 (above) , EAGLE 4x4 and EAGLE 6x6, all on show at the event.

PIRANHA 5, with a gross vehicle weight of 33 tonnes, is a highly-mobile and flexible platform with a large free payload and a highly-protected transport volume to provide significant growth potential throughout the life of the platform. PIRANHA 5 can be adapted to accomplish a wide-range of mission objectives.  General Dynamics Land Systems–UK will showcase PIRANHA 5’s innovations in Electronic Architectures, mobility and protection. PIRANHA 5 is a contender for the UK’s Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV) programme. It has proven its success in competitive trials, recently being selected by Denmark and Spain for the modernisation of their Armed Forces. It was also the winner of the UK FRES Utility Vehicle (UV) competition in 2008.



EAGLE (above) is a combat-proven vehicle that provides superior tactical mobility and highest-protection in its class. The EAGLE is in service with the German, Swiss and Danish Armies. It is available in a range of 4x4 and 6x6 configurations and can fulfill roles such as Armoured Personnel Carrier, Ambulance, Recovery, Command, Reconnaissance and Logistics. EAGLE provides logistic commonality across its range of variants to offer lower maintenance and lifecycle costs. General Dynamics Land Systems–UK has submitted EAGLE for the UK’s Multi Role Vehicle – Protected (MRV-P) programme.

General Dynamics Land Systems has a long pedigree and worldwide experience in delivering tracked and wheeled military vehicles, alongside specialist knowledge in complex, scalable Electronic Architectures. It delivers, amongst others, the Abrams main battle tank, LAV (Light Armoured Vehicle) and Stryker Family of Vehicles and the Cougar Mine Resistant Ambush – Protected (MRAP).
