Vector is based on a 6 x 6 Pinzgauer chassis and is a Light Protected Patrol vehicle developed for 8-hour patrol missions over varying terrain. Vector is utilised as a command vehicle and troop carrier and for both urban and rural patrolling.

 

The Pinzgauer is a family of high mobility all-terrain 4x4 and 6x6 military utility vehicles. They are manufactured in Guildford, Surrey, United Kingdom, by BAE Systems Land Systems. The vehicle was originally developed in the late 1960s by Steyr-Daimler-Puch of Graz, Austria, and was named after the Pinzgauer, an Austrian breed of horse.

 

It has the capacity to mount two General Purpose Machine Guns (GPMG) on the roof using Platt Mounts for mobile fire support, if required.

Vector also has a bespoke ambulance variant in order to match the mobility of the convoys the vehicle supports.
