Rheinmetall unveils AMPV multi-role vehicle with new turret system at MSPO 2017

For the first time at MSPO, Rheinmetall has unveiled its new version of AMPV multi-role vehicle with new modular turret system.

The AMPV multi-role vehicle, modified in order to meet the basic requirements of the Pegasus programme, equipped with a new remote control, medium-calibre turret system.

The turret system armed with a 12.7 mm machine gun (MG) and a two pod of Spike Long Range anti-tank guided missiles mounted externally on the left and right side of the turret. It is equipped with an optoelectronic head that is a modification of the Stabilized Electro-optical Sighting System (SEOSS), which is much better at detecting, identifying and guiding target armament.


The vehicle is offered for the Armed Forces by a team consisting of the Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles, Krauss-Maffei Wegmann and Rosomak S.A. companies. The platform’s structure is configurable, offering options of using additional armour-plating and equipment. In its basic variant, the vehicle provides the crew with level 3 ballistic protection and 4a/3b mine protection (4b to be reached), in line with the STANAG 4569 norm.
