Originally developed as an internal security and public
order vehicle, the well known RG-12 has proved to be highly effective in a
number of other applications such as command vehicle, cash-in-transit vehicle,
tactical rescue vehicle, armoured ambulance, armoured logistics vehicle, and
surveillance vehicle. In excess of 700 vehicles are in service in several
countries worldwide. The RG-12 Mk2 is readily adaptable to carry theMobile Adjustable Ramp System (MARS) to
enhance its capability as a tactical rescue vehicle.
The welded all-steel armoured hull is of
monocoque construction with all fittings welded or bolted to the hull, with armoured protection to withstand 7.61 x 39mm AK, 5.56 x 45mm ball,
anti-personnel mines, shrapnel mines, grenades and fire bombs. With its excellent on- and off-road mobility,
versatility and outstanding in-service economy, the RG-12 carries a driver, commander
and between six and ten personnel.
This spacious, air-conditioned vehicle has full
depth doors allowing ease of access and egress and enhancing operational
flexibility. The plug type doors remain
close to the hull during opening and closing, facilitating deployment of the
vehicle in narrow or restricted areas.
