Terrier – Armoured Engineer Vehicle
Terrier is the first of a new generation of multi-functional combat engineer vehicles, delivering uncompromising performance from a medium-weight chassis.
Terrier is designed to support ground forces in a variety of military scenarios ranging from peacetime support to full war conditions, earning its nickname as the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of armoured vehicles.
Terrier is fully operational under armour, using cameras providing 360ᵒ vision both in daytime and at night using thermal imaging. It can also be operated by remote control at a 1km range.
Using its bucket and excavator arm, Terrier can mechanically place or remove objects to create – or destroy – bridges and obstacles. It also has a rock hammer that can split rocks and penetrate concrete, and a ‘ripper’ that can tear up roads or runways, preventing their use.
Terrier can clear scattered mines using its surface clearance attachment. Additionally, it can use the Python rocket-propelled explosive device for rapidly breaching minefields and creating a safe path.
Terrier is protected by all-round armour which can be enhanced against emerging threats. It has nuclear, biological and chemical protection, environmental conditioning, an on-board fire suppression, smoke dischargers and a pintle-mounted machine gun.
Inside, Terrier features many technologies, including multi-function displays showing mapping, alerts, vehicle status and many others. It can also be driven entirely by joystick.
