SOV 2016 - 4x4 Tactical Vehicle for Special Operations


SOV is TEKNE's proposal for a Light Strike Vehicle, thought to be used for Special Operations and crucial in roles when other platforms like armoured and heavier vehicles cannot compete.
In confront to other military vehicles it proves in fact higher manoeuvrability and speed, and it is perfect for rugged and extreme off-road terrain; providing agile mobility to meet Light Strike and other needs, SOV takes advantage of its small size to move stealthily and grants levels of coverage and safety that military operations require.

It is equipped with a six-cylinder turbo diesel engine and state-of-the-art suspension, providing up to 325 Hp @2900rpm.

It brings a crew of up to 10 people, 2 seating in front and 6 or 8 seats on the rear, depending on the configuration requested.

Total payload is approximatively 1700kg, thus giving space to weapons, systems and equipments that will provide situational awareness and lethality if needed.

Its design enables easy customisation, not only in number of seats, to suit a variety of missions, including attack, reconnaissance and combat support roles.
