Panther – Protected Patrol Vehicle
Panther is a patrol vehicle which transports personnel and loads, whilst offering protection from mine and ballistic threats.
Panther is highly versatile and used in both combat, combat support, and combat service roles. It is used by armoured, armoured recce, and armoured infantry units, and can also be used as the commander's vehicle for engineer troops as well as anti-tank, mortar, and supporting fire platoons.
It is lightweight, weighing just seven tonnes, and is transportable by a Chinook helicopter. Panther’s design also minimises acoustic, thermal and radar signatures to avoid detection.
It is armed with a 7.62mm General Purpose Machine Gun, alongside a day or night sighting system.
