PIRANHA 3 the workhorse of the PIRANHA FAMILY

The PIRANHA 3 follows in the tradition of the proven PIRANHA vehicle concept.

This includes the modular family approach; power pack in the front, right-hand side; central driveline; independent wheel suspension; amphibious capabilities and large useable volume at the rear for weapon stations, equipment and troops. These features are identical throughout all vehicle versions.

PIRANHA 3 offers a payload versus GVW which is unrivalled on today's vehicle market when comparing the protection levels, internal volume and constant excellent mobility.

The PIRANHA family of vehicles offers the features and performances required of a modern, multi-role vehicle, and is well suited to practically any battlefield or peace-keeping/peace-enforcing role anywhere in the world. This type of vehicle can serve as an Armored Personnel Carrier or as an ideal platform for a complete range of mission equipment, including weapons systems from small caliber turrets up to 105 mm guns for superior firepower.

Another area in which the PIRANHA 3 is a leader is mobility. The PIRANHA class of wheeled vehicles was created to provide mobility that is comparable to tracked vehicles, whilst still retaining its air-transportability feature in a C-130 aircraft. This was achieved by incorporating a high performance suspension system, both conventional and hydropneumatic, a GDELS-Mowag-designed height adjustment system at all wheel stations with CTIS and ABS, as well as high power-to-weight ratio power packs.
