The Wolfhound is a six-wheeled variant of the Mastiff Heavy Protected Patrol Vehicle, which gives troops increased protection as they support missions in high-threat areas.
It is part of the Tactical Support Vehicles (TSV) group along with Husky (medium) and Coyote (small). The TSV fleet is used to accompany frontline patrols and carry essential combat supplies such as water and ammunition.
It provides a highly protected load-carrying vehicle to carry out a variety of tasks such as moving bulky stores for use in the construction of forward bases and also as a gun tractor and gun limber for the Royal Artillery's 105mm light gun.
Wolfhound is armed with a 7.62 GPMG self-defence weapon and the normal fit of radio and electronic equipment. Its commonality of design ensures that the support solution is already in place.
