Business - Wheeled Vehicles
The Wheeled Vehicles Division has two production sites, one located in Switzerland and one in Austria.
The Swiss and the Austrian factories design and manufacture wheeled armored vehicles in the weight classes from 8 tons to 33 tons.
With more than 10'000 vehicles fielded worldwide, the development of the PIRANHA family continues. The experience gained from over 30 years of operations with more than 20 countries is reflected in the latest designs.
The vehicles offer a range of distinguishing features, such as custom built driveline, modular protection, unrivalled payload to gross vehicle ratio, high capacity air conditioning, and an almost unlimited range of weapon stations, amphibious capability and renowned PIRANHA mobility.
The tactical vehicle families DURO and EAGLE complement the PIRANHA family, offering a range of tactical and logistics vehicles in the 8-to- 14-ton weight class.
The highly protected EAGLE has proven its survivability in recent operations in Afghanistan. The DURO, was also deployed in Afghanistan and is a highly mobile and versatile platform for all kinds of applications including NBC reconnaissance, Ambulance and Armored Personnel Carrier.
Last, but not least, the PANDUR, available in 6x6 and 8x8 configurations and produced in the Austrian factory, completes the Wheeled Vehicles portfolio. Based in Vienna, GDELS-Steyr designs and manufactures both wheeled and tracked armored vehicles, and currently has more than 3,000 of them in use around the world, 1,200 of which are operated by NATO member countries.
