The Wasp Rapid Deployment Reconnaissance Vehicle (RDRV) was developed by Alvis OMC and is aimed at satisfying requirements for a light airborne rapid deployment vehicle.

The Alvis OMC Wasp can be used in various roles including reconnaissance, troop carrier, fire support, light strike actions, light and medium weapons deployment, and casualty evacuation.

Although primarily designed to be deployed by air-drop or air landing, the Wasp can alternatively be deployed over long distances under its own power, or be transported by sea or air freight.

The RDRV is the primary vehicle for employment by special forces and reconnaissance units. Rapid Deployment Logistics Vehicle (RDLV), its main role is that of a logistic vehicle for employment on and around the Drop Zone (DZ).
