Order placed for Wolfhound armoured vehicles

A new breed of vehicle, the Wolfhound, which will give troops increased protection as they support missions in high threat areas, is now on order following the signing of a £90m contract.

Integrated Survivability Technologies Limited (IST) will build the Wolfhounds, a truck variant of the acclaimed Mastiff armoured troop carriers.

Wolfhound will provide a highly protected, load carrying vehicle to carry out a variety of tasks such as moving bulky stores for use in the construction of forward bases; as a Gun Tractor and Gun Limber for the Royal Artillery's 105 Light Gun and finally to carry general stores like ammunition, food or water.
