RG32M Mine hardened armoured patrol vehicle

The versatile RG32M family of armoured utility vehicles is capable of fulfilling most roles that
require a balance of protection and mobility. The RG32M fulfils a wide spectrum of command,
liaison and scouting roles. In a typical patrol mode, it can transport five crew members with their kit,
combat stores and special-purpose equipment. A full armoured body variant, which seats up to seven
crew, is also available. This includes additional rear protection extended over the rear axle.
Access and egress is through side doors and roofmounted hatches. Armoured windows provide
excellent visibility. High levels of tactical mobility are achieved through powerful 135 kW engine,
5-speed automatic transmission and portal axles.Two RG32Ms can be transported in a C-130
Crew and vehicle survivability is achieved through applied systems engineering techniques and by
utilising OMC’s unrivalled knowledge base gained from vehicle operations in Africa, Asia, Middle-East
and Balkans, in addition to rigorous and systematic field-testing in South Africa, the UK, Sweden and
the Middle-East.
