BAE Systems » Pinzgauer II Mantis

BAE Systems made several prototypes of the Pinzgauer II, including unusual bonneted version called Pinzgauer II Mantis. It is slightly lower and narrower than the baseline Pinzgauer II. Using bonneted design BAE System made an attempt to improve mine resistance, as the driver is seated behind the front wheels, giving him a chance of survival in case the vehicle runs over a mine.

The rear cargo compartment is shorted due to the bonneted cab design. The Pinzgauer II Mantis can be transported by CH-47 Chinook and UH-53 helicopters thanks to its low roof. In terms of capabilities and performance the Mantis is similar to the Pinzgauer II. It can be also fitted with add-on armor kit. The Mantis has been tested as a prime mover for the M777 towed howitzer but BAE Systems can't receive any production orders for this model.
