General Dynamics European Land Systems (GDELS) is presenting its latest military vehicle technology and the premier of new vehicles at EUROSATORY 2022: EAGLE SOF. GDELS` EAGLE SOF has been designed to mark the absolute peak of robust, durable, high mobility vehicles for special operations. EAGLE SOF is based on the combat-proven, high-mobility chassis of the EAGLE 5 4×4 PATROL variant. Instead of an armored protected crew cabin, the open roof vehicle configuration with a useable payload of 3 metric tons provides almost unlimited flexibility on mounted armaments solutions, mission equipment and modular, mission-tailored protection kits. With this full range mission spectrum, EAGLE SOF is responding to advanced demands of modern LRRP (Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol) and SOF (Special Operations Forces).
The MOWAG Eagle is a wheeled armored vehicle designed by the Swiss MOWAG corporation. It has gone through several generations of development. The current vehicle, introduced in November 2003, is the Eagle IV, which is based on the Duro IIIP chassis. The original MOWAG Eagle used the chassis and running gear of the United States Humvee, while the Eagle II and Eagle III use the chassis and running gear of the Humvee ECVThe commonality of the vehicle chassis designed from the EAGLE 4×4 and 6×6 vehicle family provides significant advantages for the military users in terms of interoperability, advanced training and operations as well as cost reduced logistics and maintenance. The MOWAG Eagle IV and V used the chassis and running gear of the Mowag Duro.
