200 new armoured vehicles for front line operations

A fleet of nearly 200 new armoured vehicles to support front line troops on operations has now been ordered by the MOD.

The £74m order for around 110 enhanced Jackal 2 vehicles and more than 70 Coyote Tactical Support Vehicles has been awarded to vehicle manufacturer Supacat, which has formed an alliance with Babcock.

The enhanced Jackal 2 features improved manoeuvrability and reliability, and will be able to carry three crew members; one more than its predecessor.
