BvS 10 Armored Vehicle

Think of the BvS 10 (Viking) as two tanks in one, as this all-terrain armored vehicle produced by BAE Systems Land Systems consists of two linked tracked units. The vehicle design allows for upgrades and for the installation of modular subsystems to suit specific operational requirements, including add-on armor, a range of weapon mounts and load changers and standard cargo platforms. Bolt-on armour plates provide protection against 7.62mm armor piercing rounds and 152mm artillery shell fragments from a range of more than 10m. It’s powered by a 5.9L in-line six-cylinder turbo diesel engine designed by Cummins and producing 250bhp @ 2,600rpm and 840Nm of torque @ 1,600rpm. The Viking can ford through water up to a depth of 1.5m without preparation, making it fully amphibious, and capable of swimming in deeper water with less than two minutes preparation including closing holes and fitting a front vane to prevent a bow wave washing over the front windows.
