The Zetor Engineering, s.r.o. unveiled a new 4×4 FOX Rapid Deployment Vehicle at IDET 2017 exhibition in Brno.

The FOX is a RDV (Rapid Deployment Vehicle) with excellent off-road performance intended for the needs of special forces or rapid deployment forces. The vehicle transports a four-member crew and equipment, including armaments.

The vehicle is designed with an emphasis on high construction modularity and it enables equipment and armaments to be combined according to the specific vehicle deployment conditions.

There are four anti-mine seats installed in the body. The seats are located in two rows, one behind the other. They are adjustable longitudinally and are equipped with four-point seat belts. The second-row seats can rotate a quarter turn around a vertical axis. The fifth seat is located at the rear of the vehicle and is intended for a gunner, facing away from the direction of travel (this seat is tilted in the transport position).

The vehicle is equipped with holders for the crew’s personal weapons, a mechanical turret on the body roof and articulated arms with mounts for four ma¬chine guns. The turret design enables mounting of the main weapon—a 12.7 mm heavy machine gun—and an ATGM launcher.

ARMAMENTS:

  • Main vehicle weapon mounted in the turret — 12.7 mm heavy machine gun
  • Four 7.62 mm or 5.56 mm universal machine guns
