Description:
The Rheinmetall Condor is a 4x4 wheeled armoured personnel carrier originally designed by Thyssen-Henschel of Germany and manufactured by Henschel Wehrtechnik GmbH.It is based on the chassis of the UNIMOG and uses the same key components such as the engine, gearbox and axles. Serviceability is high and the vehicle is easy to maintain since support is readily available from civilian sources.

Design

The Condor was designed to provide overall protection against small arms, shrapnel and small mines. Combat with the Malaysian Army during the rescue operations following the Battle of Mogadishu highlighted its vulnerability against RPG-7 rocket rounds. One Malaysian soldier was killed when an RPG round penetrated the driver compartment of his vehicle.

The Condor is amphibious and is air-transportable in C-130 Hercules and in C-160 Transall type aircraft.

Variants

The Condor is available in multiple configurations, these include:

The Malaysian Army uses mainly the Condor primarily in its armoured personnel carrier configuration, but variants such as mortar carriers and ambulances are also in service.
