Casspir NG 2000

Info
Manufacturer: DENEL (PTY) LTD  
Product type: Auxiliary Vehicles  
Name: Mine protected carrier  

At 2013 April Denel has announced that it has upgraded the capabilities of the Casspir armoured personnel carrier and introduced two new-generation versions of the vehicle, the Casspir NG 2000 and Casspir NG (New Generation) 2000B. Both vehicles retain the basic features of the original vehicle, but also feature new options and upgraded hull protection.

The Casspir NG 2000 is mounted on a Mercedes Benz drive train, while the 2000B uses a Powerstar engine as platform. Both versions will feature an upgraded steel hull meeting the highest industry standards of protection, allowing the vehicle to safely fulfil its de-mining role.

The versatile Casspir is a based on a modular design, allowing it to be easily adapted from its conventional role as mine-resistant troop carrier to become a field ambulance, a command-and-control vehicle, a recovery vehicle or a light transport vehicle. All variants are fitted with run-flat tyres and are available in 6X6 or 4X4 format and with a choice of manual or automatic transmission.

The vehicle has a cruising speed of 100 kph on roads and up to 40 kph on most off-road conditions with a reach of up to 800km on a standard fuel tank. It is designed to withstand the blast of 14kg of explosives under each wheel – which is more than can be delivered by two landmines.

According to the company the new vehicle will also feature side doors for the driver and crew and an improved back-door design for troops or passengers to enter and exit during operations. The engine and drive train have also been standardised, making the vehicle a more cost-effective solution for its users in terms of maintenance costs, spare parts and logistics.

The CASSPIR is the vehicle of choice for demining or military operations and has been used from Afghanistan to Mozambique, by the United Nations, the SA National Defence Force, private security companies and police services around the globe.

Denel Mechem is a world leader in the mine-action services and the battle-clearance industry. More than three decades after the first CASSPIR came off the production line in 1979 the New Generation 2000 will provide its end-users with new options and increased protection.
