Wolf

The Wolf was designed specifically for South African Defense Force counterinsurgency units. It is a long-range vehicle with decent armor and enough power to effectively ram most obstacles and obstructions found in its line of work. The Wolf has an armored cab at the front with an overhead hatch for the commander; this hatch has a pintle mount for twin machineguns. These machineguns are remote controlled and can be aimed and fired from within the cab. The rear troop compartment has two pintle mounts that can use single or twin 7.62mm machineguns or single M-2HB machineguns. Finally, the driver controls a machinegun that fires through a firing port in the windshield. The bottom of the vehicle is contoured and armored against mines, and is treated as having twice the frontal armor rating and one more point of suspension against mine blasts. There are three firing ports in each side or the vehicle and two in the rear; in addition, the commander also has a firing port in his windshield, should he need it.

The Wolf Armoured Vehicle (Hebrew: ) is an armoured transport vehicle, used mainly by the Israeli Defence Force. It was created to provide a better handling and better protected armoured vehicle than the M113 (Bardelas). The Wolf is a heavily armoured crew carrier, manufactured by the Hatehof company. It combines a commercial truck's speed and maneuverability and APC-like armour, qualities necessary for low-intensity confrontation. The Wolf's chassis is based on a Ford F-550 truck, and is equipped with a 6-litre V8 engine. The engine is combined with a 5-speed automatic transmission, which drives all four wheels, making this a four-by-four.
