Description: The ASCOD (Austrian-Spanish Co-Operative Development) is a medium-weight infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) designed to meet the requirements of the Spanish and Austrian Armies. The ASCOD survivability on the battlefield is achieved through add-on armor and the hull's low profile. The armored chassis can accept a variety of gun systems such as 30mm and 105mm cannons, mortar or remote weapon stations. Besides, the ASCOD can integrate surface-to-air missiles and anti-tank missile systems. This armored vehicle received the Pizarro and Ulan designations in the Spanish and Austrian Armies respectively following its entry into service in the year 2000 and 2002. In March 2010, the United Kingdom (UK) Ministry of Defense (MoD) selected the ASCOD platform for its FRES Scout requirement under the Scout SV designation.

The General Dynamics European Land Systems (GDELS) ASCOD 2 is a 35-ton second generation of the ASCOD tracked vehicle family equipped with rubber tracks to decrease the noise and vibration levels. Besides, ASCOD 2 features improved survivability through an innovative mine protection solution, superior mobility on and off-road, increased ergonomics and crew comfort. Its carries a crew of three-man (gunner, driver and commander) plus seven fully equipped infantrymen along with a roof-mounted Lemur 12,7mm remote weapon station. Its mine protection system, compliant with NATO STANAG 4569 standard, combines advanced construction design and innovative shock-attenuation devices. The ASCOD 2 was unveiled in June 2014 at the Eurosatory exhibition, Paris, France.
