South Africa-based Land Systems OMC is to manufacture 111 RG-31 mine-protected personnel carriers for the US Army. The RG-31 is the mine-protected vehicle of choice for peacekeepers, with an all-steel welded monocoque hull that protects its crew from both anti-personnel fire and anti-tank mines.
A South African firm has won orders worth almost US$250-million to supply the US, Canadian, United Arab Emirates, Swedish and Italian armies with its mine-protected vehicles. The US order came after five soldiers travelling in one of the vehicles, designed and made in SA, walked away unhurt after driving over a mine in Afghanistan.
