EAGLE - The Superior Tactical Mobility and Payload

General Dynamics European Land Systems presents the EAGLE V, a further development of the EAGLE IV fleet, already in service. The EAGLE V features a higher payload capacity and increased crew protection at superior tactical mobility. Recently, GDELS was awarded a contract by the German Army for the delivery of 100 EAGLE V Vehicles. To meet the increasing demand for mobility, protection and payload, General Dynamics European Land Systems offers the EAGLE vehicle family comprising 4x4 and 6x6 versions. Due to its higher payload capacity, it can carry more equipment or heavier protection solutions, depending on the military or police customer’s requirements. This highly mobile vehicle, with a crew capacity of up to 5 soldiers, offers outstanding protection against ballistic, mine and improvised explosive device (IED) threats. Interchangeable automotive parts and components with DURO vehicles provide a cost-effective logistics commonality.
