Description: The Swiss MOWAG company designed and developed the Piranha amphibious multipurpose armored vehicle as a private venture. The Piranha vehicles feature high survivability, high mobility due to the use of wheels, low life cycle costs, high reliability, high availability, and easy maintenance. The Piranha III vehicle family introduced in the late 1990s offers a greater payload than preceding Piranha vehicles as well as improved protection through the use of add-on armor, high mobility and increased internal volume. The Piranha III are powered by a single MTU 6V 813 T22 diesel engine providing 400 hp, however other engines are available. They are able to accommodate a turret with a 105mm gun. The Piranha vehicles have been deployed in conflicts and peacekeeping operations. Several thousands of them are in service today with armed forces all over the world.
