Wolf II

The Wolf mine-protected COIN ICV was developed in SWA/Namibia for use by the SWA Police COIN Unit as a successor to the Casspir. The extensive operational experience gained with the Casspir has been incorporated in the Wolfs design, with specific regard for the harsh terrain and the demanding operational conditions of SWA/Namibia. The design has been tailored to suit the par-ticular needs of the SWA Police COIN Unit, but also to meet the SADF requirements in respect of anti-mine protection and ar-mour protection for the crew and passengers. The Wolf series vehicles are thus extremely effective in cross-country operations on both the hard and the sandy surfaces of SWA/Namibia's northern regions. The powertrain allows ex-ceptional cross-country mobility at high speeds and has a tre-mendous reserve of power to deal with sand and heavy bush. The phenomenal range of the Wolf facilitates fast, long-range follow-up operations and has eliminated the need for a bowser. Maintenance has been simplified to a considerable extent, and the design specifically provides for the rapid replacement of components after a mine detonation. A complete axle unit has been replaced in the field in as little as two hours after a multiple mine detonation.
