It has exceptional off-road mobility, especially in bush conditions, sand, mud and on hard rocky surfaces. It is able to operate over long distances at high speeds. Operating range on road is in excess of 1,000 km on standard fuel tanks without refuelling and approximately 400 to 500 km off road.
The Ratel has a crew of three and uplifts an infantry section of 10 men. This vehicle can be fitted with a variety of weapons systems. We design different weapon brackets in the existing turret as well as an additional turret system that can be fitted.
The armour plate used is optimised in terms of protection versus mass through the particular hull design. It is protected all round against armour-piercing small arms ammunition, hand grenades and Claymore mines as well as air burst shrapnel (typically 140mm HE shells), and against 12,7mm (0,5 inch) ammunition from the front. It also provides a high degree of protection against land mine blasts. It is possible to effect quick and effective repair after damage by a landmine and to have the vehicle back in operation with minimum delay.
One of the main design criteria for the vehicle is to provide the best possible level of reliability in operation under the types of conditions described above and with relatively unskilled operators. Intensive tests to destruction were carried out covering all aspects of its operation requirements. On average 80,000km is attainable before repairs are required.
The Ratel is also designed for easy and inexpensive maintenance. The very important factor of longer term “Cost of Ownership”, as opposed to initial purchase price, has received a lot of attention and experience has proved that the vehicle provides excellent value in this respect. It is the only wheeled lCV of its type that has been used in operations and has shown itself to be a most effective system both in terms of its operational purpose and cost. It is therefore a truly combat proven vehicle.
