Wolfhound

six-wheeled wolfhound heavy support vehicle

Wolfhound in action

The Wolfhound is a six-wheeled variant of the acclaimed Mastiff, which will give troops increased protection as they support missions in high-threat areas.

It is part of the Tactical Support Vehicles (TSV) group along with Husky (medium) and Coyote (small). The new TSV fleet will be used to accompany frontline patrols and carry essential combat supplies such as water and ammunition.

It will provide a highly protected load-carrying vehicle to carry out a variety of tasks such as moving bulky stores for use in the construction of forward bases and also as a gun tractor and gun limber for the Royal Artillery's 105 light gun.

Wolfhound will be armed with a 7.62 GPMG self-defence weapon and the normal fit of radio and electronic equipment. Its commonality of design will ensure that the support solution is already in place, and that the training bill for troops using the fleet is minimised.
