The PIRANHA 5 is a highly mobile, armoured multi-role wheeled vehicle with a high payload and a large internal volume.
It provides protection against current threats, and its integrated modular and adaptable survivability system can also be tailored to protect against future threats.
The economic Fuel Efficient Drivetrain System (FEDS) and the high-performance diesel engine provide the expected power and cruising range. There is still growth potential in the area of hybrid power boost technology.
The semi-active hydro-pneumatic suspension system with height management allows the highest mobility and provides excellent ride comfort for the crew.
The open vehicle architecture with health / usage monitoring system allows for rapid system integration, data exchange between onboard systems and future growth.
