The King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau (KADDB) (Hall 5) has unveiled its latest Stallion II light armoured vehicle (LAV).

The vehicle shown at SOFEX is fitted with roof-mounted Rheinmetall grenade launchers over the frontal arc. DRS Technologies thermal cameras are fitted for situational awareness through a full 360°, with the images displayed at the driver’s and commander’s position to the immediate rear of the engine compartment.

KADDB is marketing the Stallion II for a wide range of battle eld missions. e example at SOFEX is in the armoured personnel carrier (APC) con figuration, with a total of eight seats. Other suggested missions include internal security vehicle, logistics, reconnaissance and border patrol vehicle.

For a higher level of cross-country mobility, the Stallion II is fitted with heavy-duty independent suspension and standard equipment includes a central tyre inflation system, powered steering and a front-mounted winch.

Provision is made for the installation of a 7.62mm or .50 machine gun on the roof. Alternatives include a protected weapon station or even a remote weapon station armed with similar weapons.
