RG-35 / N35
The N35 – formerly known as the RG-35 – is an armored vehicle with superior mine protection and combat capabilities and can be used in command, ambulance and recovery roles. The RG-35 was launched in 2009 and since then evolved into the 4x4 RPU (Recce Patrol Utility), IFV (6x6 Infantry Fighting Vehicle) and the 4x4 MIV (Motorised Infantry Vehicle). The 6x6 version was launched at the 2012 Africa Aerospace and Defence exhibition and features an 8.5 ton payload with seating for up to 14 crewmembers. The N35, formerly known as the RG-35, can be used in command, ambulance and recovery roles.
In November 2015 Denel Vehicle Systems concluded a contract of more than R900-million with NIMR in the United Arab Emirates for the development and supply of advanced mine-protected vehicles. This contract for N35 is one of the largest received by Denel Vehicle Systems (DVS) in recent years and will provide work for two of the company’s major divisions for the next 24 months.
Zwelakhe Ntshepe, Group Executive Business Development says the new contract confirms Denel’s leadership role in landward mobility and mine-protected vehicles. It is one of several contracts awarded to DVS since it joined the Denel Group earlier this year. “We are delighted to work with NIMR, one of world’s leading manufacturers of wheeled armoured vehicles,” says Ntshepe. “There is a strong synergy between our companies and products and we are confident that we can, together, develop and improve the N35 to be among the best in its class.”
